From Farmerleaf

40-year-old natural tea garden leaves from the top of Jingmai Mountain
Picked from mid March to mid-April 2017
Hand-processed in our tea factory
Pressed into 100g and 357g pu-erh tea cakes
Miyun is our classic Jingmai tea cake. In 2017, we sourced tea from different natural tea gardens located on Jingmai Mountain which all belong to our family. Most of these gardens are located on the western edge of Jingmai Plateau. They are moderately shaded and grow in sandy soils, which limits water and nutrients retention and is beneficial to tea quality. The tea gardens haven’t been fertilized nor sprayed with insecticide since 2010.

The kill-green process by hand in a wok, we used almost the same parameters as last year for this production. Though the final result feels a bit redder as of May 2017. The tea soup is a clear bright yellow.

The tea has a complex vegetal and spicy fragrance that can be found both in the bottom of the cup and in the tea soup. The thickness is decent, though in no way comparable to our Jingmai Gulan. Bitterness is low, astringency is moderate. This makes a well-rounded everyday tea that has the typical features of Jingmai Mountain.

This is a nice, clean young puerh tea from Farmer Leaf. No smoke or toasty off flavors, suggesting a processing that is to my taste: clean, pure, and highly aromatic. The fragrance is strong with sweet musk, a fruited sweetness, and a little roasted-corn-like character. Not overly vegetal, with some nice bitterness that is not overbearing. This is a bargain, in my opinion. I purchased a 100g cake, but after this tasting I think a full-size bing is going to be in my next order. Not totally mind blowing by any means, but definitely a great tea that could work well for a nicer daily drinker.
