22, sauerkraut

Among the new raw tea, there are often sour gas as sauerkraut. Those who collect tea on Chashan often see that tea farmers have simple production equipment, and they can sometimes see pigpen next to the warehouse, so they think of pig urine and so on. In fact, sauerkraut is caused by green tea processing technology, and it is by no means pollution.

When the processing masters of many old factories make tea, they will cover the tea pile for a while after killing the green. With such a process, the tea will appear deeper after drying, the taste will be more mellow, and the aroma will be different. But if you cover a little too much, there will be a smell of sauerkraut -like. In various tea mountains, especially those famous tea -making villages, which are handmade tea, they can find this process of tea making individual workshops, and it is even considered to be inconvenient.

The chemical components of the fried fragrant fragrant are mainly sulfur -containing hybrid compounds, which will be produced in high temperature processing.


The stack of flavor is from describing the “fermentation of the other pile”, which describes a fermented smell similar to bad feelings such as mixed acids, crickets, mold, and fishy.

It is common in the new cooked tea, because the traditional cooked tea is a long -term and complicated change process. The number of tons to tens of tons of tea is stacked together. The lack of tea will produce some bad smells, and how to minimize this bad smell to minimize the processing of processing. (On the basis of this thinking, the fermentation technology of leaving the ground was born, and the cooked tea that was fermented from the ground was lighter.)

If there is no severe fermentation or excessive, then according to the concentration of the heap taste, through the reasonable warehousing of the length and short period of time, these unfinished odors can be naturally decomposed and discharged and showed Chen Xiang.
