I saw a lot of introductions about Pu’er tea on a blog. Let me know a lot about Pu’er tea. https://www.umiteasets.com/blog/category/tea/puerh-teas

I’m assuming this is an editing mistake and you mean the reverse:

“Sheng Pu-erh, generally, shouldn’t be aged for more than ten years, after which it basically becomes an old Sheng Pu-erh. Shou, on the other hand, can be aged for over 20 years, and typically becomes better with age”

A long time ago I read that sheng can be aged nicely up to 60 years and shu for 25.
I think you may be right, this was stated backwards.

Yes, you’re right! :)
