From Tribute Tea Company

The Jingmai mountain region is legendary for its hand-crafted Puerh, which grows freely in its lush, wild tea forests. The ethnic Dai people live here, near the borders of Yunnan and Burma. Climate conditions and rich soil are ideal for consistently producing mild, yet uniquely complex, puerh teas. Strict laws determine exactly what qualifies as a true “Jing Mai tea”, as collectors scramble and prices continue to climb.

While Jingmai occupies a large geographic area, there are fewer tea artisans than most regions, making it very difficult to obtain these rare treasures. Jingmai tea is considered a excellent morning tea, as its delicate notes are easier on the stomach and the tea is a focusing stimulant.

This freshly-plucked Spring leaf has a slightly smoky, apricot aroma and a delicate, earthy flavor…

Highly limited supply! Sourced exclusively for us by the famous explorer and author of The Ancient Tea Horse Road, Jeff Fuchs…

Notes: earthy, juniper, shiitake

Infusion: 200ºF / 93ºC for 30 seconds

Origin: Jingmai Mountains, Yunnan Province, China

I got this out to actually review last night and kind of forgot about it.
I got about 11 grams in the easy steeper to start with. This is a loose maocha and the aroma is of a sweet hayfield.
I dropped this in and gave rinse to start with. The tea-pet enjoyed it,
The aroma on the first steep, a bit tannic.
This one is a Jingmai so the citrus is expected. It is there but this has a good bitterness on the edge as well. It really compliments the cup. The color is darker than most teas from this age. I would say due to the storage being loose maocha.
It is a nice complex brew that give the body a good feeling on a cool Summer night.
