    Jingmai has recently become one of the more famous and sought after regions for pu’er, thanks in part to massive marketing and awareness campaigns. This cake was pressed before Jingmai dominated the national consciousness, and its profile reflects an elegant, classic aesthetic, perfectly balanced between sweet caramel, salty steamed bun, dark elderberry, and tingling spice.


  • 'Most pu’er does become more complex over time. Astringency mellows out, darker and richer flavors come through. Textural complexities become more pronounced. Starting with an intriguing young pu’er of high quality with lots of textures and flavors at play will increase your chances of graceful aging.'
