Jin Jun Mei Black Tea


Product Description

Jin Jun Mei is an extraordinary black tea made from only the buds of wild tea bushes grown at very high elevations.   It is grown by the same tea garden that produces lapsang souchong. This is an extremely rare and amazing tea. The dry leaves consist entirely of buds which give the brew a floral and fruity taste. The buds are plucked from a wild species of the camellia sinensis plant that is grown at extremely high elevations, around 1500-1800 meters above sea level .  Jin Jun Mei has a charming natural sweetness accompanied by its medium bodied texture, is smooth and has a complex symphony of flavours, sweet and fruity tastes alongside floral hints.

Region: Tongmu Village, Fujian Province, China.

Other Names: Jin Jun Mei Lapsang Souchong.
