Tea has gone through thousands of years from edible, medicinal to drinking.
The beauty of tea lies in its taste. A good cup of tea can make people feel refreshed. The beauty of tea lies in its culture. Tea is a magical leaf. Drinking tea not only brings health, but also spiritual enjoyment.
Pu-Erh tea, which grows in Yunnan, is ecologically healthy and has a unique taste. The place has many mountains and mist around, so there is a saying that "high mountains and clouds produce good tea". In the 1970s, the artificial fermentation technology was successfully developed and ripe tea was born.
The beauty of ripe tea lies in its color.
Ripe tea is usually sieved and graded, so the appearance is uniform and the cords are even. The buds are mostly golden.
In addition, the color of a good ripe tea is like amber, crystal clear, and it shines under the sun.
The beauty of ripe tea lies in its taste.
The development of ripe tea is to solve the problem of too long fermentation time (often more than a decade) after the natural fermentation of raw Pu-Erh tea. Therefore, the natural fermentation process is artificially imitated to achieve the purpose of rapid aging of raw Pu-Erh tea.
In the "National Standard of Pu-Erh Tea (GB/22111-2008)", a professional explanation of "post-fermentation": Yunnan Dayezhong Sun-dried Green Tea or Pu-Erh Tea (raw tea), under certain environmental conditions, undergoes microbial, enzymes, heating, oxidation, etc. Its contents undergo a series of transformations to form the unique quality characteristics of Pu-Erh tea (ripe tea).
Fermentation makes the tea mild, not dry or strong, and the well-ripe tea often has the characteristics of a mellow and smooth taste.
