I have not been drinking pu erh tea for long, so don't know very much about it. If anybody can help, then I would be grateful.
I have tried pu erh from the 1990's and the drink produced was very dark, and with a deep taste. I have also tried pu erh from 2000 (uncooked) and this was a very light colour (almost like green tea) but with a floral taste.
My question is this: how do you know what type of pu erh is dark, and what is light? Is it to do with the age (and at what age does it produce the dark liquid) or whether it is cooked or uncooked?
