Some great aging process

Is there a "Sick period" for puerh much like great vintage havana cigar?

My interest as a collector of puerh and habanos lead me to draw parallel, since we are both dealing with ammoniac, oxidation, evaporation, chemical reactions and self-degradation etc.

In Min Ron NEE "An Illustrated Encyclopedia of Post-Revolution Havana Cigars", the author listed out aging periods of premium cigars.

Sick Period - one month after production to around 2 years.
First Maturation - around 5 years
Second Maturation - 15 - 25 years
Third Maturation - 50 years up

Well, I have another 50 years to find out....
