I didn't say that. I was pointing out the difference between aging and fermenting. Both will affect flavor, but differently. Puerh is one of the few teas that undergoes a fermentation process. After the fermentation process, it is aged. But, many teas are aged without fermenting them. Some can withstand aging, some do not. The article Olivierco linked to explains how gyokuro is treated when it is aged. Excellent article.
