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.
This Yiwu tea is made from 2009 Yiwu material, pressed and then stored in Guangzhou natural conditions soon after pressing. It is just nearing middle aged character, with a lingering sweetness and strong presence. The tea is already fairly smooth for those who prefer to enjoy it now, but would also benefit from long term aging.
The wrapper says "Yiwu Gushu" [old arbor tea] among other claims, all of which should be taken with a grain of salt. (Actual Yiwu Gushu would add a zero to this price) However, the tea is a very well priced quality tea for those looking to drink middle aged Yiwu or seeking to build a collection. A tong of this tea is quite affordable to put away for the years to come.
