From Tribute Tea Company

The wild tea forests of Jingmai are inhabited by ethnic Dai people, who consistently produce incredible puerh, year after year. This rare, organic tea was plucked from 70-100 year old trees and compressed into cylinders in the traditional method – a practice that dates back hundreds of years to the mule caravans of the ancient tea horse road.

More than 6 years of gentle ageing in bamboo husks enables a cup with a delicate sweetness and beautiful coppery hues. As it slowly loses its stimulant effect, it is offset by a fuller, darker, and more complex vegetal flavor. Locals enjoy a cup first thing in the morning, as its mild astringency and smooth character is easy on the stomach and help to embrace the day. A classic honey aroma is finished with a woodsy flavor of baked peaches…

Sourced exclusively for us by the famous explorer and author of The Ancient Tea Horse Road, Jeff Fuchs.

Notes: baked peaches, honey, lemon

Infusion: 200ºF / 93ºC for 30 seconds

Origin: Jingmai Mountains, Yunnan Province, China

I came home from work exhausted from dealing with asinine kids, & had about 30 minutes to recoup before my round of private students, who are much more well behaved & much more interested in learning. I knew I wanted a raw puerh long before I walked in my front door, & this one caught my eye.

Dry, there is a horsey aroma, but after a rinse that aroma was gone. The tea had an immediate dark amber color, even with a very short steeping, a pleasant light taste, & an instant huigan. I’ve been drinking from these leaves since 3:30, & have enjoyed every cup. The flavor built to leather, tobacco, caramelized brown sugar & vanilla. The sweetness is a stone fruit kind of taste, and the later steepings have a lemony edge.

I’ve reached the end of my sipping for today, but I feel like this will go on for many more cups. The color is still rich, the taste sweet, the energy rejuvenating…everything I needed today :)
