Golden Beautiful Eyebrows - Jin Jun Mei

$ 18.99

Description

The Jin Jun Mei is unique because it uses a the Fu Yun Number 6 cultivar, which manifests as a honey-like fragrance in the finished tea. This tea comes from Tongmu Guan, Wuyishan, the birthplace of black tea (hong cha). It’s tippy with golden downy buds and some slightly larger leaves to provide a nice balance of complexity in the cup and beauty in the dry leaf. This is my go-to tea to introduce friends to black tea, to prove that there are some amazing black teas that don’t resemble tea bags in the slightest.
