Jingmai Brick 2004

| /

This large brick, made on a small family farm on Jingmai Mountain in 2004, is a traditional compressed form of pu-erh. Made with a slight shu processing—using a minimal amount of introduced moisture—the flavor offers an intriguing balance between lightly earthy and warming, and pleasantly fresh and tart. It's rounded from the first cup, with a sweet aroma of clay and rose that lasts through many infusions. Subtle notes of wood and orange peel linger, making this a balanced, easy-to-drink pu-erh.

To brew, gently unwrap the covering and flake off a small portion of the brick; rinse tea leaves briefly in boiling water. Enjoy multiple cups from the same leaves, tracing the arc of flavor and fragrance through each.
