The name of Jin Junmei tea: Jin Junmei tea is the top grade Lapsang tea in Wuyi Mountain and is also one representative of black tea in China. Jin stands for rank and Mei stands for the shape like brows.

Contrary to popular belief, black tea has not been cultivated in Yunnan for very long. The cultivation dates back only to the beginning of the 20th century. In spite of that, some of the best black teas in the world are found there. The appellation Gong Fu is reserved for the highest quality teas from Yunnan. The exceptional teas that have a right to this appellation are characterized by the abundance of buds produced by the trees. The Yunnan Hong Gong Fu variety comes from high-altitude plantations in the Simao region. The leaves are carefully picked in early spring and are only slightly oxidized before being manually dried by pressing in a large heated steel vat.

Tasting notes: The leaves bear an abundance of beautiful golden buds. The gentle twisted shapes release suave aromas of blond tobacco, caramel and scorched earth. The red-orange liquid has a marmalade nose. The mouth feel is round and slightly sweet. Aromas of tobacco, exotic wood and ripe apricot spread their fullness through the mouth. The long, rich finish is remarkably comforting. Jin Jun Mei Tea Jin Jun Mei Tea Jin Jun Mei Tea Jin Jun Mei Tea Jin Jun Mei Tea Jin Jun Mei Tea Jin Jun Mei Tea

Great tea
Very quick shipping! I received it within six days of ordering. The tea is excellent! healthy leaves, I've brewed it in a Gaiwan up to 6 times and have still gotten strong subtle flavour. I will buy some more and give it to my friends.

Jin Jun Mei Tea
The tea smells great! Love the aroma and taste. The process behind this tea makes me appreciate every sip. The taste is very tasty: hints of honey, sweet potato, tiny amount of chocolate. Reminds me of a good black tea but better! My family likes to drink it. Thank you.

It came in a bunch of small individual 4ish gram yellow mylar bags that have a nice design on them. The leaves when wet look much like the picture. The dry leaves don't have as much yellow/gold tips. The tea doesn't taste bad, but I wouldn't say it tastes very good either - I've never had Jin Jun Mei before so I'm not sure what it is supposed to taste like. I'd like to try a better quality one and see/smell/taste the difference.
