Pu'er Tea Drying Process


Pu'er tea pays attention to the brewing technique and the art of drinking, and there are many ways to drink it, which can be drunk clear or mixed. Pu-erh tea has a strong orange-yellow tea soup, sharp and long-lasting aroma, unique aroma, rich and mellow taste, and can withstand long-lasting brewing.

Pu-erh tea is loose tea and pressed tea made from large-leaf sun-dried green tea as raw material and processed through fermentation. These include Pu'er tea that has been fermented naturally in history (storage is also a processing method), as well as Pu'er tea that is artificially fermented and naturally fermented today.

Pu-erh tea categories: Pu-erh green tea, Pu-erh black tea, Pu-erh green tea, Pu-erh yellow tea, Pu-erh black tea, Pu-erh white tea.

The Pu'er tea processing steps

(1) Cooling: Lose part of the water in the fresh leaves. In the process of running water, some aroma substances are formed, and part of the large-molecular ester-capable sugar is hydrolyzed into small-molecule compatible sugar.

(2) Finishing: The processing raw material of Pu'er raw tea is Yunnan big-leaf sun-dried green tea. Sun-dried green hair tea is mostly fried in a pot. Because of the high water content of the large-leaf species, it must be shaken and combined to make the tea lose water evenly. The high temperature can quickly inactivate the enzyme activity and prevent the oxidation of polyphenols. Part of the water is evaporated, which is beneficial to kneading into strips.

(3) Kneading: Break the tea cells to ensure that the tea juice is fully leached during brewing. Kneading should be flexibly controlled according to the age and tenderness of the raw materials. Young leaves should be lightly kneaded for a short time; old leaves should be kneaded heavily for a long time. It is advisable to master and knead until the basic strips are formed.

(4) Drying: The rolled tea leaves are naturally dried or dried in the sun to retain the organic matter and active substances in the tea leaves to the greatest extent. The surface cells of the dried tea leaves have large pores, which is conducive to generating a large amount of heat during the fermentation process.

(5) Autoclaving: Steam the dried or sun-dried tea leaves with steam and press them into different molds.

(6) Drying - control the water content below the water content that can be safely stored. Generally, the water content of Pu'er tea is required to be below 10%.
