It is the general advice on this forum that a puerh should be rested after being received from a transpacific flight. What I am curious about is, how long do you rest a new tea before brewing it? Do you notice a flavor difference from not resting it.
I generally rest my teas about 4 to 5 days but sometimes don't bother. I am not usually in that big of a hurry to try them anyway.

In winter, puerh cakes lost most of their aroma and magic for week or more. Tea is sensitive for weather and transport. Puerh cakes come in zip packs and they need time to be in air. It´s my experience
