First of all, the purchase of tea need to pay attention to place:
Puer tea have many story,not all a gimmick, but it also increases the chance of being fooled. To the beginning of the purchase of puer tea friends recommended "six no" point:
One, Do not take the wrong age as the standard;
Two, Do not fake packaging as the basis;
Three, Not to the depth and shallow of the soup color as an excuse；
Fore, Not to add taste as a false impression;
Five, Don't following Mildew smell and warehouse name as importance spot;
Six, Not following tree aged and tree type
So how can I get the best quality puer tea?Understanding of producing area
Pu'er Tea refers to the origin of Yunnan large- leafed sun dried Maocha again processing of the two series: Indirect re processed products for raw puer tea and artificial fermentation processing experience ripe puer tea,Yunnan is the origin of Pu er tea, Simao, Xishuangbanna and Lincang, the local area of Dali is the center of gravity of the origin of Pu er tea.
Distinguish between new and old Pu er teaNew Pu'er tea refers to the just made of Pu erh tea, appearance the color green, pekoe, rich taste; old Pu'er tea is refers to Storage is the longer Pu'er tea, long time experience after fermentation, the tea appearance is white jujube, pekoe turn brown
Distinguish tea soup color
Try to brew puer tea, and see pu'er tea soup color. Because of aged Pu erh tea after a long time of continuous fermentation, tea color darker, but not as black as lacquer; and new puer tea soup color is shallow. But this can only be used as a reference, because even the new Pu'er tea, some tea color will very deep, the best way is try to drink.
Try to drink and taste
Try to drink is tea of choose and buy a more reliable way, due to a cup of tea, OK, match to be unsuited to taste, drink from the trial can the know, a nice cup of tea will not have musty, more is not a cup of bitter water. New tea pekoe, not aging, sweet taste; Chen Pu erh tea, pekoe turn lily, flat and not comfort. Therefore, the taste is mellow.
But here I would like to talk to you emphasize, buy tea to pay attention to frist see color, the second concept of appearance, third smell the aroma, four tea flavor, five pinch dry
One, look at the color:
New tea color is generally fresh and pleasing, or green or dark green. Some tea color dry dark brown, show tea has different degrees of oxidation, the tea is often old tea; if the leaves have obvious focus, bubble point (black or dark reddish brown spots) or a leaf edge coke side, that is not good, not good tea; if the tea color and luster miscellaneous flowers, shades of color contrast is bigger, which indicates that the tea is clamped in the customers, old leaves and Chen tea, so tea on is not good tea.
Two, View shape:
A variety of tea has a specific shape characteristics, some like needles, some seeds, like film, some like beads, fried tea leaves are tight knot, straight. General said the new form of tea: the bands of bright, size, thickness, length of uniform for the top grade; a withered cable dark appearance is not the whole, or even a tea stalk, tea seed were beneath contempt. Fine, bud, tender Feng Miao sharp high; rough pine, old leaves, tender leaves of low fat bulge. Flat tea to flat, smooth, as well, coarse, dry, shorter for the times; strip tea in the cable tight, round straight, uniform Qi as well, rough, twisted, short pieces for the times; grain tea to successful firm were as good, loose pieces.
Three, smell the aroma:
New tea generally have new tea aroma. Good new tea, tea aroma is particularly obvious. Such as can't smell tea aroma, and smell of tea green gas, crude old-fashioned, burnt gas is not a good tea. If old tea, the aroma is weak or there is a smell of chen.
After the entrance of tea sweet and fresh, mellow and refreshing, sweet taste are best left in the mouth; usually take a small sample brewing observation, good green tea, soup color is dark green and clear, tea first if astringent flavor after the glycol, and with chestnut flavor.
Five，hand pinch dry and wet:
A pinch of tea pinch with your fingers, can judge the degree of wet and dry tea. Tea to be resistant to storage, must be dry enough. Moisture of the tea water is higher, not only will seriously affect the color, smell and taste of tea, but also easy to mildew.
In the final analysis, is not a good tea, mouth know, suitable for their own is a good tea!
