Aroma/Color/Taste: This Jin Jun Mei is smoky with a hint of fruit and a soft beautiful after taste.  Very smooth and long mouthed.  It is smokier than our Zheng Shan Ziao Zhong  (The Queen's Tea) and softer, but not as sweet.   Jin Jun Mei is known as the "Delicate Golden Eye Brow", and is picked from the same tee tree as our Zheng Shan Xiao Zhong,    These tea trees are over 100 years old.  Differing from the Queen's Tea, Jin Jun Mei is picked from only the very tip small leaf and if you look at it you'll see how fine and delicate it is.  It is rare and from old tea trees that have the power to energize and move your Qi.  It is a great black tea!

Location: This Jin Jun Mei tea is from the center of Wuyi Mountain on the protected side, where tourism is restricted and all wild life is protected.  Wuyi Mountain is in the northwest of Fujian Province in southeast China.

Made by:  It was made from tea trees over 100 years old by Tea Master Zhou. 

 

 

Brews & Steeping:  Bring the water to a rolling boil.  Wait for the bubbling water to settle.  Pour off the first brew to open the leaves.  For first drink, infuse for 3 seconds, pour and enjoy.  This tea can make 10-15 infusions.  Increase steep time only slightly longer as you reach the final brews.  You'll know by the color and taste of the tea, when it has been exhausted.  We recommend using a small thick clay teapot and spring or filtered water.  

Our teas are packed and shipped with eco friendly packaging when possible.
