Club selection of October 2019 - The far southwest of Yunnan province lies along several border regions and some of the oldest free-standing tea forests on the planet can be found. Jing Mai is a region, a mountain and even a village where the Dai, Hani, Wa, Lahu and Bulang all reside. Slightly smaller in size, the local Puerh leaves are a different variety than those of the region of Meng Hai which are significantly larger. Smaller leaves, different soils and different flavour notes all contribute to our naming of the tea, Wéimiào which translated from Mandarin means “subtle, gentle, or profound”.

Tasting Notes - All elements within this offering speak to the subtle strength of this tea. A Spring offering with long honey notes and slightly softer vegetal tones, this ‘Subtle Sheng’ shouldn’t be mistaken for a tea without strength. Its power comes with the length of the flavour notes and its soft-edged fresh green notes. Play slightly with infusion times and do not assume that because of the more subtle tones of the tea that it doesn’t carry strength. We urge taking of this tea on an empty palate to take in the layers of our subtle offering.
