Jin jun Mei
Available size: 11g, 25g, 50g
An extremely special and rare Red tea from Wuyi in Fujian province.
Delicately twisted leaves with a high concentration of golden tips distinguishes this tea from other red teas. The quality of the tea really shines through in this gorgeous red tea. The tea itself is stunning in its beauty, with golden tipped leaves that are bright with a malty smell.
Tian He Comments
Picked from Zhengshan Tea Gardens, Jin Jun Mei is made with tea buds only. Every 500 grams of this tea consists of 50,000 sprouts. As a skilled farmer could pick 2,000 everyday, to make one pound of the tea, it takes 20 farmers a whole day to collect the shoots.
This tea brews up into a deep mahogany colour that holds a very bold, deep and crisp flavour. Be wary of over steeping as this is a high-quality tea that can become bitter if brewed incorrectly.
A full-bodied infusion has a deep red and honey-like sweetness with a subtle milkiness and light coppery finish.
