Misunderstandings encountered when collecting Pu-erh tea:

1. Blindly pursue the year of tea. In fact, Pu-erh tea that has been stored for more than 20 years is now rare, and Pu-erh tea that is more than 30 to 40 years old is even rarer. Some "aged cakes" on the market that sell for up to a thousand dollar are actually steamed by some businesses using only one or two or even a few months of tea leaves.

2. You may think that collecting old tea can make a lot of money. In fact, it is very difficult to collect Pu-erh tea personally. Because the aging of Pu-erh tea is affected by factors such as time, light, temperature, air, humidity, and environment, the quality of the tea will vary greatly depending on the storage environment and temperature.

In the 1970s, the 100-year-old "tea head" Tuancha in the Forbidden City was identified by bubble drinking, and it was found that the Chen tea had only a dark red soup color and no taste at all. This is due to the fact that the age is too long and the tea has "aged" excessively.

4. Think that moldy Pu-erh tea is good. Nowadays, most people who want to store tea do not understand tea. They generally judge the quality of Pu-erh tea by the packaging, brand, color, etc. of tea cakes. Some people even think that only tea cakes have a thick layer of hair and musty. It is good Pu-erh tea. actually not. To choose Pu-erh tea, you must try the tea in person, and then make judgments based on the tea bottom. In addition, the raw materials, production process, and the availability of storage all affect the quality of tea.
