Jin Jun Mei | Black Tea
This Fujian black tea is composed of long, black, hand-made leaves that produce an aroma that is sweet and rich. It's complex yet very balanced: smooth, strong, sweet, and very fragrant with a lingering spicy/dark toffee note. This is a wonderful and unique Chinese black tea.
Jin Jun Mei translates as "Golden Beautiful Eyebrow". It is made in the Wuyi Shan region of north Fujian province using the Mei Zhan cultivar. It is grown and processed in the springtime.
