Golden Eyebrows Black
Jin Jun Mei, or “Golden Eyebrows” (names for the fuzzy golden buds which comprise this tea) is a newly famous and highly sought after black tea from the Wuyi Mountains in Fujian China. Harvested early in the Spring, this tea is both oxidized and roasted. It is a highly unique black tea with an especially viscous mouthfeel and complex malty flavors.

Our Jin Jun Mei is honey-sweetness forward, with mouth-filling malts and leaves and lingering piney aftertaste with lots of tingling-sensation. This is really one that has to be experienced to be believed; there’s no other tea quite like it.

Origin – Fujian, China

Location – Huang Gang Mountain

Harvest – 4/1/20

Cultivar – Fu Yun #6

When I went through a golden bud black tea phase. What-Cha ran out of their Jin Jun Mei, so I ordered more from this site.

I still have some of this one, and though it’s not quite as rosy or complex as What-Cha’s, it’s very satisfying. Like most teas I pick, it’s been good western, gong fu, and grandpa. More floral than I’m used to for some JinJunMei, but still heavy with the typical Fujian chocolate malt notes. I’m not sure about how their notes compare to mine, but I find a lot of changing in the malt notes and more pine in later steeps. Not sure about “dried fruit notes” yet, but I have gotten some honey-fructose sugars in some tastes. Fairly durable for a JinJunMei too.

I really like this one, but I need to write about it again when I’m focusing on it rather than powering through backlogs.
