Palate 2017 Fall Raw Puer – Xiang (200g Cake)

Earn 360 Tea Miles


Picking a representative for this category was a no brainer. Jingmai is known to produce very high fragrance teas that produce an orchid-like scent and a honey sweetness. This tea characterizes this perfectly, with a signature Jingmai scent prominently on display.

One of the most noticeable aspects of any young raw puer is its fragrance, whether it be floral, fruity, grassy, barnyard hay-like, or perhaps something less desirable. It’s what you notice before the cup even touches your lips. Regardless of whether this is what one prioritizes in a tea, the presence of some kind of fragrance is arguably necessary. Teas that lack fragrance can be described as flat, flavourless and otherwise uninteresting.

We could perhaps be off in this assessment, but can you recall any great teas that you would say generally lacked fragrance? Would you want to drink it regularly? Didn’t think so.

This cake is made from the “tian” material of our Palate tasting set, which also includes examples of soft (rou), bitter (ku) and a sweet (tian) puer.

    This is a delicious tea at a really great price. This sheng puer is true to its name, and has a really delightful floral aroma that I have not tasted in many other raw puers. The strong floral flavor is complimented by a gentle sweetness and light astringency. So far I’ve tried this tea a couple of times in my Jianshui pot and been very satisfied. I’m really looking forward to seeing how it will age!
