2009 Raw Puer tea from Jingmai.
A humble brick of aged tea with an inviting price. The floral character of Jingmai has evolved into a deeper sweet and fruity style fragrance, with elements of its original floral character. Much of the astringency of youth has been tempered by age and the tea is now pleasantly smooth in middle age. Excellent tea for a budget aged daily raw.
Each brick is 250 grams.
Ripe Puer Tea from White2tea, made using 2012 material, pressed in 2015.
This tea is made from a pile fermented exclusively with top tier huangpian [the largest leaf used in Puer production]. The Brown Sugar brick has Menghai character. The soup is sweet and smooth. It was rested for over two years prior to pressing and is ready to drink now or store for the long term. The material used is of uncommonly high quality. Later steeps are light in color, with a sweet and soft profile.
The fermentation level of this tea was around 65%, which is considered light. Some leaves may even be slightly greenish, and will continue to become darker with further aging.
