Over 80% of Pu-erh on (Guangdong) Market Are Less Than 5 Year Old

Recent news from Guangzhou said that although lots of tea houses in Guangzhou sell Pu-erh that claimed to be 10, 20, even 50 years old, experts pointed out that over 80% of Pu-erh are less than 5 years old.

Mr. Zhang spent 650RMB and bought 250g 10 year old Pu-erh at a tea house in Guangzhou that specializes in aged Pu-erh this October. After tasting, experts believe that the tea he bought was only around 3 year old.

Mr. Weizhen He, vice secretary general of Guangzhou Tea Industry Association said that most Pu-erh teas on (Guangdong) market were produced after year 2000, and the supply of 10, 20 or 30 year Pu-erh is very scarce. For a real taste of vintage Pu-erh, please check out our
