Spring 2016 "Jingmai LOVE" Sheng / Raw Puerh from Crimson Lotus Tea
This tea is sold out of our China inventory but is still available from our Seattle inventory.
We here at Crimson Lotus Tea are in love with Jingmai. Jingmai is an amazing area with deep history and fantastic teas. We have blogged about our adventures in Jingmai. We wanted to create an affordable Jingmai cake and this blend is a result of that.
This blend captures the essence of Jingmai. You have depth, body, floral features, and an amazing honey aroma. With some age these features will really develop.
If you love Jingmai, you'll love "Jingmai LOVE"!
