Farmer Leaf Summer 2021 Jingmai White Tea Review

Today’s review: Summer 2021 Jingmai White tea from Farmer Leaf

Tea Specifications

Brand: Farmer Leaf
Tea: Summer 2021 Jingmai White Tea (Moonlight White)
Vintage: Summer, 2021
Origin: Jingmai, China


The first thing I noticed is that this tea looks a bit different than other ‘moonlight white’ teas which I have seen. Many of the leaves are a rather peculiar black color, and some have a sharp sheen, but that being said, I actually think the tea is quite pretty, and there is some nice looking fuzz on some of the leaves.

Amount of Tea: 7 Grams
Brewing Vessel: Small Glass Pitcher
Type of Water: Bottled Water (Reverse Osmosis)
Steep Time: 40 Seconds – 45 Seconds – 50 Seconds

Light in flavor and color, but has a deep roasted nut note which is quite delicious.

Notes of raisins and peppermint developing in later steeps.

Not even remotely bitter.

Flavor notes: Roast wood, roasted nuts, honey, raisins, and peppermint.

I think this is an enjoyable tea, but it’s a little different than other ‘moonlight white’ teas which I’ve tried. I’m not sure if this was processed correctly.
