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.

Towards the second half of the session, this tea still gets quite astringent and watery, but the main sequence of infusions is more full bodied than before with a well-rounded profile and definitely less grassy character. I like it, especially given its price and the fact that I am generally not the biggest fan of Jingmai teas.

The 2018 seemed like a good deal for the price.
