AAA (Imperial) grade Jin Jun Mei from Tong Mu Guan village in the Wu Yi mountains! Special processing and super-fine leaves gives this a unique taste and strong cha qi!

Recommended brewing parameters:

Use 85-90c spring water. Wash once with small amount of water and use that to rinse the cups. 2nd infusion keep infusion time to 10 or 15 seconds only. Gradually increase steeping time. This is a delicate tea, so don’t use too much tea, time or heat on it!

Mid-April 2018 Harvest

195 Degrees F, Gongfu, 20 seconds for first 3 infusions, then + 5 Second infusions

This is my first Jin Jun Mei. I suspect that this isn’t a high quality Jin Jun Mei because these teas can go for a very high price and the picking doesn’t appear to be great. This tea was very affordable. Overall, this is a very enjoyable black tea, but I had to search pretty hard for tasting notes. My first impression was just, “this tastes like a good black tea”. Very Smooth finish. The slight sourness seems to give the tea just enough character to be interesting all the way through. I noticed that I started to perk up and feel pretty good after the 3rd infusion. Ive been avoiding this tea for about a year, but I think I will make this my morning tea for awhile. This is one of the better black teas I have in my collection currently. Tea lasted about 8 infusions.
