Naturally fermented Pu-erh tea becomes more mellow and fragrant with time. The color and fragrance of the dry tea and the color and taste of the tea liquid also improve with age.
The tea liquid color varies according to the number of storage years. The dry Pu-erh tea produced and consumed the same year is fresh, jade green and glossy in color with a sun-baked smell. Its tea liquid is similar to green tea, mildly fragrant with a sweet aftertaste. Pu-erh tea naturally fermented for 5 years is apricot yellow in color with a rich, lingering fragrance, mellow taste and a sweet and pleasant aftertaste. Dry Pu-erh tea, fermented naturally for 10-20 years, is the same as the tea processed with pile fermentation. Its tea liquid is bright red with a mellow and rich fragrance and flavor, gentle and refined taste and a sweet and pleasant aftertaste. However, the tea liquid of the 30-year-stored raw tea is similar to the tea naturally fermented for 5 years in terms of taste, color and fragrance.
