Jin Jun Mei is a a black spring tea made entirely from the buds. JJM was developed in Wuyi mountains as recently as 2005 when some visitors challenged local tea maker to make a black tea from only the buds. After many attempts, Jin Jun Mei was introduced and is now regarded as one of the best Chinese black tea. Its silky body and rich fruity and sweet notes are a delight.
LEAF: Sweet nutty notes emanate from gorgeous golden tips (buds) that have been rolled finely. The buds are remarkably downy.
INFUSED LEAF: Woody brown, plump buds with milk chocolate notes that are sweet and cooling.
CUP: Rich amber with notes of honey, cooked yams and almonds. Coats the palate with sweet fruity, nutty flavors. Long lingering finish. Great at second steep.
