I thought I was out of tea but then I remembered that I had a couple samples left from Tommy, this being one of them. Now having a little experience with ripe pu-erh, I was very curious about trying a raw pu-erh. This one was very simple, clean, and approachable. It was very mellow with little to no odor, and a pleasant flavor that is hard for me to describe. I guess I would say it was a little earthy (but in a light and pleasant way), with a slight alkaline flavor. It felt very organic and was different than any other tea I’ve experienced. Although I’m not quite convinced that a pu-erh is my “cup of tea”, I like this quite a bit, thanks Tommy.
2006 Jingmai QiaoMu/Arbor Pu-erh Tea Brick
A great valued, premium small tea brick is made with JingMai big tree/Qiaomu/Arbor material.
Jingmai is one of the most well preserved large wild organic tea growing regions. It is situated at about 5,000 feet above sea level and inhibits some ancient tea trees up to 50 feet high, largely due to the area’s fertile soil, good climate, no pollutant and remoteness from modern cities.
