普洱茶怕什么?紫陶罐能做什么?

一位陶友提问:是否有必要将普洱茶存入紫陶罐中?

A Tao friend asked: is it necessary to store Pu’er tea in purple pottery pots?

我觉得不要用“必要”这个词,必要的意思就是非这样不可,但现实中许多茶叶,包括许多普洱茶,都没有存入紫陶罐中。

I don’t think we should use the word “necessary”, which means that we have to. But in reality, many tea leaves, including many Pu’er teas, are not stored in purple pottery pots.

换一种说法,我觉得更符合现实:对于普洱茶的存放来说,紫陶罐不是必要的,但却是比较好的一种选择。

In other words, I think it is more realistic: for the storage of Pu’er tea, purple pottery pot is not necessary, but it is a better choice.

为什么这样说?只要讲清楚普洱茶怕什么而紫陶罐能做什么,大家就会明白了。

Why do you say that? As long as you know what Pu’er tea can do, you will know what you are afraid of.

普洱茶怕什么呢?

What is Pu’er tea afraid of?

一怕完全密闭。普洱茶若被完全密闭在一个小空间里,不能和外界进行适当的空气交换,无法形成一个适宜的湿热和微生物及酶的活动环境,自然后发酵就无法正常进行,茶叶品质不会发生本质变化。

I’m afraid it’s completely sealed. If Pu’er tea is completely enclosed in a small space, it can’t exchange air with the outside world properly, and can’t form a suitable hot and humid environment for microorganism and enzyme activities. The natural fermentation can’t be carried out normally, and the quality of tea will not change essentially.

二怕通风过度。普洱茶长期存放在空旷的大空间里,通风过度,茶味会渐渐散失殆尽。

Second, they are afraid of excessive ventilation. Pu’er tea has been stored in an open space for a long time. If the ventilation is excessive, the tea flavor will gradually disappear.

三怕太过潮湿。虽说普洱茶需要一定的湿热条件去支持后发酵过程,但也有一个限度。如果太过潮湿,茶叶在发酵之前首先就已经发霉变坏了。

I’m afraid it’s too wet. Although Pu’er tea needs certain hot and humid conditions to support the post fermentation process, there is also a limit. If it’s too wet, the tea will go mouldy before fermentation.

四怕刺鼻异味。茶叶大多具有吸附性,普洱茶亦如是。如果存茶环境长期存在异味,存出来的普洱茶也会带有异味。

Four afraid of pungent smell. Most of the tea is adsorbable, so is Pu’er tea. If there is a long-term odor in the tea storage environment, the stored Pu’er tea will also have an odor.

紫陶罐能做什么呢?一切都是因为紫陶的泥料性质以及由此而决定的坯体结构特征。

What can purple pots do? All of these are due to the clay properties of purple pottery and the structural characteristics of green body.

紫陶泥料属于泥质而非砂质,目数高,细若膏脂。制成陶器后,坯体具有一定的透气性,可以和外界进行缓慢的空气交换;因泥质细腻,又不至于通风过度,大量散失茶气。

Purple pottery clay belongs to mud rather than sand, with high mesh number and fine as paste grease. After being made into pottery, the green body has certain air permeability, which can exchange air slowly with the outside world; because the clay is fine, and there is no excessive ventilation, a large amount of tea gas will be lost.

同时,特殊的坯体结构,使得紫陶罐内部形成一个相对独立且稳定的小环境,温度和湿度不会受外部环境变化而剧烈浮动,具有较好的连续性和稳定性。既能支持缓慢的后发酵,又能避免潮湿过渡而发霉。

At the same time, the special green body structure makes a relatively independent and stable small environment inside the purple pottery pot. The temperature and humidity will not fluctuate violently due to the change of external environment, so it has good continuity and stability. It can not only support the slow post fermentation, but also avoid mildew caused by moisture transition.

内部环境稳定,只和外部进行缓慢的空气交换,因而也能对刺激异味起到比较好的隔离作用,不至于大量吸附。

The internal environment is stable, only with the external slow air exchange, so it can also play a better role in the isolation of the odor, not to a large number of adsorption.

以上是从紫陶的一些基本特征来谈,并没有特别精确的实验数据。但陶友们在日常的使用中,一定对紫陶的这些特点有所体会,类似于生活常识一般。所以我说紫陶罐对于普洱茶来说是比较好的一种选择,是从常识的角度为陶友们提出建议。

The above is from some of the basic characteristics of purple pottery, there is no particularly accurate experimental data. But in daily use, Taoyou must have some experience of these characteristics of purple pottery, which is similar to common sense of life. Therefore, I say that purple pottery pot is a better choice for Pu’er tea, and it is a common sense suggestion for Taoyou.

当然,如果有机构能从实验中得出更精确的数据,相信会帮助大家做出更好的选择。

Of course, if some institutions can get more accurate data from the experiment, I believe it will help you to make a better choice.
