Today I am reviewing a 2019 Jingmai micro-match ripe puer tea from Farmer Leaf.
Brand: Farmer Leaf
Tea: Micro-batch Ripe Puer
Vintage: Autumn, 2019
Origin: Jingmai, China
Amount of Tea: 7 Grams
Brewing Vessel: 120ml Clay Teapot
Type of Water: Bottled Water (Reverse Osmosis)
Rinse Time: 10 Seconds
Steep Time: 25 Seconds – 30 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.
