2017 Dark Step Jingmai Sheng Pu'er Bing (烏步景邁生普洱餅, Wū Bù Jǐng Mài Shēng Pǔ'ěr Bǐng, "Dark Step Jingmai Sheng Pu'er Bing") - A beautiful cake made from material from Jingmai Mountain near Pu'er City, about 2 hours north of Nannuo Mountain. Composed of large, whole, dark leaves, this cake has a multi-layered profile with both sweet and bitter notes that unfolds and evolves on the palette. Though only 6 years old as of the time of this description, it has a surprisingly mature flavor characteristic of dry-stored Yunnan pu'er. Mellow with low astringency, this tea is a textbook example of what a sheng pu'er made from high-grade starting material becomes as it ages. Ready to drink as is, it will only continue to deepen in character as it ages.

    great entry into aged bings

    Fresh Puer is like a child: energetic, wild, a little abrasive, but worth taking the time to get to know. Add a few years and a young aged puer starts to try to figure out what it is, it's purpose in life... It hasn't fully aged yet, but you can see the potential. This cake is a great way to experience what aging has to offer, without spending a huge amount of money. It's young enough to still give you a bit of the bite the fresh puer has, but it's much more relaxed and confident in what it brings to the session.
