Monsieur Lafleur 2020 Jingmai Raw Puer



This tea has an adorable floral flavour that makes it an affordably florid favourite. Put that all together and this tea can simply be described as “affloraldorable”.

But seriously, in typical Jingmai fashion, this small-tree tea unleashes a strong orchid fragrance and overall floral and fragrant character, producing a tongue twister of flavour.

A clear fan favourite in 2019, the 2020 version is an equally excellent daily drinker with tong-worthy characteristics.

Picking period: Pre-April 2


All of our samples for spring 2020 are in dragon ball form. While these balls will perform the same as the cake, they can be slightly trickier to brew. Here’s how we do it:

    //Eyes dry leaf
    Both 2019 and 2020 versions have similar looking leaves. Same amount of buds/leaves/stems. Talking of colors, the 2020 version a little more army green and sienna brown tones.

    //Nose dry leaf
    2020: More floral than it’s counterpart. Old leather, summer food and minerality
    2019: There’s a kind of heaviness in the smell (I know it’s weird to say). Pleasant smell of hay in the field

    //Nose wet leaf
    2020: Total and strong punch of hay, minerality and wet clothes drying outside
    2019: Intense floral notes and a kiss of tart

    //Eyes liquor
    Similar color of the liquor: yummy orange. Note that 2020 is a bit darker and looks thicker

    //Mouth texture
    Cheeks and teeth coating Thick texture (a bit more for 2020)

    //Mouth taste
    2020: Vanilla cake with almonds and honey. Dough and vegetable in the ricecooker. Hay. Wet rock. Tiny sweetness
    2019: Less intense in general. Lighter vanilla cake and dough taste

    //Nose Empty Cup
    Butter madeleines. Plus an orange blossom bonus for 2020

    //Body sensation
    Dry to juicy mouth sensation. Feel my heartbeat in my arms. Eyes awake and super active brain.

    //Brewing notes
    1 gram per 20 mL of water at 95C
    Brew 1 : 13 seconds
    Brew 2 : +3 seconds
    You will have lot a top quality brews. Get prepared to drink a lot

    //Overall impression
    Really happy with the 2020 improved taste. Will certainly become my go-to of the week after the 2019 runs out. Tea to keep in mind for the next few years.
