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.

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.
