2020 Jingmai Pu'er Shupu Stone-pressed cake
Jingmai mountain is located in the southwestern border of Yunnan province, in Lancang County, Pu'er city. Few hours of travel separate our Nannuo mountain from Jingmai, but the taste of Shupu produced in this ancient mountain is warm and familiar.
The great variety of wild and ancient tea trees gained Jingmai its popularity, but what fascinated us is its complexity of flavor, and the beautiful golden hues that can be admired in the pressed leaves. Their aroma has the under-forest mellowness that recalls a Nannuo shupu, but Jingmai also has a slightly bitter aftertaste, that emerges timidly in the huigan - the "returning flavor". This excellent quality releases an intense fragrance of dates, that persists in the cup even when the warmth of the infusion disappears.
