One of the intentionally aged teas, Pu-Erh has a loyal following.
There is a down side. Today to celebrate being snowed in I brewed a pot of my small stash of 96 purple Dayi While this tea is still excellent ( It tastes like there might be some LBZ in the blend). But It has lost a small amount of its energy becoming more mellow and rich.But a bit of zing that it had has been lost. I guess what I mean is some teas I want to age slower or dryer. I have ordered a large rock style jar from Petr Novak to put mature cakes. I now think I should order another jar or two for cakes that I want to age more slowly lighter cakes (like 05/04 Yan Qing Hao).
