The Journey of Tea

I Remember a Good Tea, Can Andy Help Me Recreate It?

I Remember a Good Tea, Can Andy Help Me Recreate It?
Hello everyone,

I'm Andy, a tea enthusiast.

Last week, after sharing the story of “The Myths and Truths About Hong Shui Oolong Tea” with everyone, many of you asked, "I remember a good tea, can Andy help me recreate it?" This is a common question from gourmet customers, and honestly, I'm not always sure I can succeed, but I can spend time communicating with customers.

Why is this? I've compiled some possible reasons to share with you.
1. Physiological Decline in Taste.
With age, our sense of taste gradually dulls. Compared to the sensitive palate of youth, the blunted taste in older age struggles to detect subtle flavors and aromas.

2. Variations in Nature.
Past climate conditions have changed considerably from today, like how the water in Lugu's ditches used to freeze. Changes in temperature, humidity, and light, along with the aging of tea trees, can alter the taste of tea.
3. Differences in Brewing Water.
Tea brewed with high mountain spring water tastes the best. It's possible that this key ingredient, "high mountain spring water," is no longer available, making it impossible to replicate the tea's flavor from the past.
4. Maturation of Psychological Taste.
This is more interesting. Have you ever noticed that snacks that tasted great in childhood seem less delicious when you're older? Did the factory change the recipe? In fact, no change has occurred. This is because our psychological taste matures. As we try more foods, our brain accumulates a sense of how delicious they are, leading us to choose only the tastiest options. Therefore, the more types of tea you drink, the less appealing that first tea you tried becomes.

"The sweet aftertaste in one's memory" is often the best flavor of tea.

That's all I must share today, see you next time.
