Cooked Puerh Mini Cakes

普洱迷你熟茶饼

Pressed exclusively for JING, these cooked puerh mini cakes come from Donghzai garden in Yunnan province, China. The tea leaves were picked in Autumn 2018 and processed using the 'wo dui' (wet piling) fermentation method; creating the rich flavour of incense woods and tobacco leaf, and a velvety texture unique to this style of tea. The loose tea was then placed into storage for two years to help develop it's complex character, before being individually pressed into the traditional 'tuo' shape in March 2020.

    Very smooth

    It's good - smooth taste and will be appreciated by many Pu Erh drinkers. I personally prefer something which is a little more astringent/more of a mineral taste. The one which was outstanding was the 1990s Royal Pu Erh which Jing don't seem to do anymore.

    Also - one mini cake is pretty strong for a 250ml cup so suggest breaking it into half if you want a milder brew and can instead reinfuse a couple of times.

    Handy little Puerh

    I have been a big fan of puerh for a long time. The big cakes have always been a hassle and after seeing this I was in love.
    They are naturally the perfect size for one cup worth of tea and I enjoy the chocolaty, malty taste a lot.
    As a warning for any Puerh newcomers: It is a fermented tea and you have to get accustomed to the taste. I would still recommend trying it.
