Ageing Mao Cha

by PolyhymnianMuse » Nov 13th, '08, 21:41

Soo I'm kind of interested in how I would go about ageing mao cha. I think it would be a fun experiment since I am also starting a bit of a collection of sheng cakes for ageing and drinking, but mostly for ageing. What are the major difference between loose mao cha and cake form (in terms of storage, ageing, etc.)?

Just store it in a Lunch paper bag and forget about it.

Really? Just a plain brown paper bag? Where would be a good environment to store the bag than?
