Farmer Leaf Autumn 2019 Jingmai Micro-batch Ripe Puer Tea Review

Today I am reviewing a 2019 Jingmai micro-match ripe puer tea from Farmer Leaf.

Tea Specifications

Brand: Farmer Leaf
Vintage: Autumn, 2019
Origin: Jingmai, China


I brewed this tea in a small Yixing teapot using standard bottled water.

First Steep

Steeped for 25 seconds.

The fragrance is sort of like candied mushrooms, with beetroot and some light floral notes.

The flavor reminds me a bit of wet soil, but it’s a bit sweet as well.

A slight bitterness seems to cling to the back of the mouth.

This is a somewhat unusual tea, but I rather like it and I would enjoy drinking this again.

Flavor notes: Candied mushrooms, beetroot, wet soil, and field flowers.

Second Steep

Steeped for 30 seconds.

This brew is much darker in color.

Flavor is the same, but perhaps a bit stronger.

We will be happy to hear your thoughts
