This is a 2019 pressing of 2017 Spring tea leaves harvested from Jingmai mountain area tea bushes. The 2 years of aging as loose leaf mao cha in Menghai has softened and warmed up this lovely tea, giving it a honey aroma and sweet taste. Jingmai area tea is not purely assamica (it's called 中小叶种) and tends to have a somewhat more delicate character as compared to pure assamica pu-erh tea.
This is a very enjoyable lightly aged Jingmai area tea that delivers incomparable value at its price point!
Pressed by Menghai area producer Heng Tong Hao (恒桐号)!
