Pu-erh is special in that the quality and value improves with age. The older it is, the better. This is especially true with Green (Raw) Pu-erh. After going through the slow post fermentation from years of aging, this tea develops a very desirable and special kind of taste and fragrance found only in aged Pu-erh.
If you are interested in storing and aging your Pu-erh, we recommend you choose the compressed type (tea cake, brick, tou cha etc). It is not difficult to store Pu-erh tea at all. Here are a few guidelines :
1. Keep away from sunlight and heat.
2. Clean and dry environment.
3. Keep away from places with strong odors.
4. Provides good ventilation. Unlike other types of tea, Pu-erh requires ventilation in order to age.
