From Farmerleaf

We’ve been producing the Jingmai Miyun since 2016. This is a blend from several high-altitude natural tea gardens located West of Da Ping Zhang plateau near our village.

The tea gardens were established about 40 years ago. They started out as intensive plantations and were converted into natural tea gardens around 2010. This conversion implied stopping the use of pesticides and chemical fertilizers, reducing the plantation density, planting shade trees and letting the tea trees grow in size.

While such teas are typically cooked in a machine, we prefer to use a wok and do the job by hand. This offers more control and a richer tasting profile but takes much longer to make.

You will find in this tea a typical Jingmai profile with honey fragrance, some bitterness, a medium body and a pleasant aftertaste. This tea is quite astringent, a common characteristic of the Jingmai terroir.

With my first Farmerleaf order, I got this mini cake for casual drinking. It delivers more or less what one would expect from a Jingmai plantation tea. It is tasty, pungent and not too complex with quite a floral profile. The aroma is green and grassy with notes of dandelion among other flowers. Taste-wise, I found the tea to have a good balance of umami, sweetness and bitterness. At this young age, it is still a bit grassy and a little salty. Mouthfeel is soft and drying, and I get a warming sensation spreading throughout the body after drinking.
