How Long Does It Take to Change Sheng Puer Tea to Shou Puer Tea?

Some people might ask how long does it take to change Sheng puer tea to Shou puer tea. I’m afraid it won’t happen, sadly. It’s nothing to do with the time. They are very different teas.

What Are Sheng and Shou?

Raw puer tea, generally referred to as Sheng Pu (生普), refers to the tea that is processed from the sun-dried big-leaf tea plants from Yunnan Province. The colour of the dry tea is dark green.

Aged Ripened Puer Tea

Ripened puer tea, generally known as Shou Pu (熟普), refers to the tea that is firstly processed from the sun-dried big-leaf tea plants from Yunnan Province and then piled and fermented artificially. The colour of the dry tea is brown.

In conclusion, we can understand that the difference between raw puer tea and ripened or fermented puer tea lies in the fermentation process. Raw puer tea doesn’t get artificially fermented. But ripened puer tea does.

Why Can’t Sheng Puer Change To Shou Puer?

The post-fermentation effect of the raw puer tea in the process of later storage is a natural maturing process. As time goes by, the colour of the dry raw puer tea will become darker, the soup colour will turn red, and the refreshing taste will become mellow.

In order to quickly acquire the wonderful taste of the natural maturing, people invented this artificial fermentation step to speed up the maturing process from which we get ripened puer tea. However, in this stage, the nature of the tea is changed. Fundamentally, they are different.
