What To Pay Attention To When Storing Green Tea 3505

  • Is ventilation and drying really good for the storage of Chinese Green Tea? How many of these three misunderstandings have you hit?
    Compared with the sweetness of the mouth, the tea lovers who have some experience in drinking tea tend to pay more attention to the mellowness of the tea soup, the degree of wrapping, the throat rhyme, and the deep and restrained tea fragrance of Pu'er tea that has been stored for several years.
    A Pu'er tea with good materials and technology, after good storage and transformation, the later period will generally show a trend of "the soup is thicker and thicker, the throat rhyme is deeper, and the body feel is stronger" In the literal sense, "the more the old, the more fragrant".
    How can I drink old tea with a more mellow and thicker soup, a more pronounced throat rhyme, and a more obvious body sensation?
    Regarding the storage environment and shelf life of Pu'er tea, the national standard (GB/T22111-2008) clearly stipulates:
    Storage: The product should be stored in a clean, ventilated, dark, dry, and odor-free warehouse; shelf life: Pu'er tea is suitable for long-term storage under storage conditions that meet this standard.
    It has long been a consensus in the industry that Pu'er tea has the attributes of "the more aged the more fragrant", but the "ventilation" of "clean, ventilated, dark, dry, and no odor" required by the storage environment has been arguing among tea lovers.
    Is the ventilation environment more conducive to the transformation of Pu'er tea?
    Some tea friends believe that moderate ventilation speeds up the air flow, which is more conducive to the transformation of the substances contained in Pu'er tea.
    But from the perspective of reducing the escape of contained substances, a relatively stable environment is more suitable for storing Pu'er tea.
    The "more aging, the more fragrant" Pu'er tea is mainly achieved through the action of microorganisms.
    In addition to the continuous supply of sugar, the temperature, humidity and oxygen content in the air do not change drastically, and microorganisms are more likely to survive and grow in such an environment.
    As far as the final aging result of Pu'er tea is concerned, the more the microbial action is, the more soluble polysaccharides and free amino acids in the tea soup, and the higher the comprehensive drinking value.
    Therefore, in order to ensure the stability of the Pu'er tea storage environment, ventilation is unnecessary.
    Is pressed cake tea more suitable for storage?
    Bing, Zhuan, and Tuo are the three most common types of pressed Pu'er tea, especially Qizi Bingcha with a net weight of 357 grams.
    Because Pu'er tea manufacturers of various brands are mass-produced, and most of the higher-priced old teas on the market are Qizi cake tea, many tea lovers generally prefer to buy cake tea when collecting Pu'er tea.
    If you consider the "stable environment" required for Pu'er tea storage, the transformation effect of brick tea is actually better than that of cake tea.
    Compared with cake tea and Tuo tea, brick tea has a more regular shape, with smaller gaps between tea bricks, more quantities that can be stored in the same space, higher stability in the small environment, and better later transformation.
    Can the purple pottery/zisha jar store Pu'er tea for a long time?
    Pu'er tea has a long conversion cycle, and it will inevitably absorb dust or other impurities in the air during storage.
    Purple pottery and purple clay pots can provide a relatively closed space while isolating dust and light. Therefore, some tea lovers believe that old tea stored in purple pottery and purple clay pots for a long time has a higher aroma and taste purity.
    However, both purple pottery and purple sand are breathable, outside air and moisture can penetrate in, and the contents of tea can also escape, and the stability of the small environment for storing tea is reduced. The long-term conversion of Green Tea 3505 will also be affected to a certain extent.
