Jingmai Mountain Wild Arbor Black tea of Spring 2015

Jingmai Mountain area is a large area in the southern part of Lancang county of Simao Prefecture. There are more than 50 villages in the Jingmai mountain range, almost all are involved in tea cultivation and processing. Our Jingmai Wild Arbor tea is made from a naturally occurring Jingmai assamica varietal that is naturally hybridized and smaller in scale than pure assamica.
The tea brews up a chocolate and floral sweetness much like a Zheng Shan Xiao Zhong, but with it’s own unique character.
Spring 2015 harvested!

Gongfu in a 70ml glazed pot, boiling water into a thermos, so probably about 207F. Malty sweet potatoes with a layer of chocolate. Delicious and very nicely balanced with very low bitterness. I usually find hong to be too bitter potato skin or bitter malty/astringent, this is much better ratio of those aspects. Does tend to go a little sour by the third steep. Thanks for the sample, steph!

This tea is the first one of my big hongcha order I review.

This is a really simple yet delightful hong cha. It taste everything like a hong cha should
taste. There is a bit of a cacao’ey taste and aroma comming through in the later steeps.

A good tea but nothing stellar. Cheap daily drinker…
