2008 Jingmai Sheng Puerh Tea Jianshui Zitao Storage Jar :: FREE SHIPPING
This is a rare tea blend. We are quite pleased to be able to offer it. This tea has been aging in Jingmai loose since 2008. This is a blend of young and old tree material. Back in 2008 in Jingmai they didn't differentiate material as much. It's rare to find Jingmai stored material. Jingmai is a protected export only tea growing region. Once leaf material leaves Jingmai it can't come back. Protecting their borders is a task they take seriously.
This tea is phenomenal! The honey aromas are so deep and rich it's almost unbelievable. Were we to press this material it would lose the magic aroma it has now. We're happy to offer this tea as maocha.
These custom made clay jars are each handmade by 4 artists who work together. They are single fired and unglazed. Jianshui is in Yunnan, and the clay used in these storage jars comes from the same mountains that grow puerh tea trees. We appreciate that connection. We blogged about this unique town here.
Storing tea in these jars is advantageous to most other methods. The jars provide a micro climate that is resilient to humidity shifts. You can continue to store tea in these jars for many years.
The jars are either matte red, matte black (with streaks of red), or a random mixed swirl color pattern of matte red and matte black. Changing smoke and heat during firing is what creates the unique patterning. Since these are handmade products each are unique. There are slight variations to each. Yours will vary slightly from the pictures. These jars measure on average 12cm total width and are between 12 and 15cm tall.
The jars will hold a little bit more than 200 grams total of loose leaf. We offer the options of purchasing these jars with 100, 150, or 200 grams of the 2008 Jingmai sheng material. The jar will arrive with the amount of tea you desire. The 100g jar will be half full. These jars are reusable and would be excellent for storing other sheng puerh in after the 2008 Jingmai has been consumed.
