Smooth As 2012 Jingmai Ripe Puer

Smooth As 2012 Jingmai Ripe Puer



There are a few things a good shou puer should be: clean, thick and especially smooth.

Pressed before we existed (as a company), this re-wrapped shou puer is made from 2012 Jingmai material that was originally labelled as “gushu”. You can look at the price and decide if that makes sense or not, but in the meantime we’ll just drop that and call it 2012 Jingmai.

Gushu or not, we don’t care. This tea is smooth as smooth. It has a pleasant flavour with no off tastes, as any good semi-aged shou should. And while fragrance is not always a standout quality for shou, this one performs very well in that regard, giving you something to grab onto in all ranges.

    Silky mouthfeel. Notes of mineral earth, hardwood, and dark cacao. No off flavors. Would make a good daily ripe.

    I received a sample of this with an order and it is officially next on my list as far as cakes to buy. I really loved it. It is smooth and silky, and has all of the best qualities shou has to offer.

    A very nice tea, I liked how smooth it was. Some of the other teas can bite you in the throat, but this one was gentler. I do prefer something with a long lasting aftertaste and it didn’t do enough for me to repurchase. But nothing bad to say here.
