Made from mixed picking huang pian, with a few buds in there for good measure, this Jing Mai raw puer leans towards a more fruitier fragrance than our 2018 In Bloom. Similarly, it maintains a high fragrance and full taste in the mouth.

Huang pian simply refers to the older leaves on a tea tree that are either picked later in the season or removed from earlier pickings due to their less-than-desirable appearance. The leaves end up a yellow-green colour after roasting and don’t take to rolling the same as their younger counterparts, remaining flatter and stiffer.

Nonetheless, huang pian material still can make for a very flavourful tea, typically with a smoother, sweeter and easy to accept character at a fraction of the price.

Drank Grandpa!

I’m surprised I’ve not written a review for/had this tea before!? It tasted very familiar and I swear that I had – but maybe I’m thinking of the non Huang Pian version of it? I do own that one as well…

Regardless, this was very lovely! It’s sweet and smooth, with those lovely and distinctly “Jingmai” character floral notes that I’ve actually come to appreciate a lot in a nice young sheng. I thought it coated my mouth in a nice and refreshing way, and also had some crisper vegetal notes – like snow peas. Very sweet, lingering finish also.

Just a feel good cuppa!
