Every Day Jin Jun Mei
2020 Spring Harvest - Tong Mu, Fujian, China
Indulge in the world's most celebrated luxurious black tea. Indulging, rich, and satisfying. In China, Jin Jun Mei is typically purchased as a gift. Every Day Jin Jun Mei is a lower Grade than our Jin Jun Mei Deluxe but the quality remains very high. We wanted to originally only select Jin Jun Mei Deluxe, but when we tried this one, we couldn't resist it. It's unbelievably good for a lower grade Jin Jun Mei, and we thought, why not have an Everyday Jin Jun Mei too?
Jin Jun Mei (golden eyebrows) is a relatively modern tea, only introduced to the market just around 15 years ago. Originating from Tongmu Village in the Wuyi Mountain region, the home of Lapsang Souchong. All teas from this region enjoy superior natural conditions.
Jin Jun Mei is one of the finest teas produced in the famous Wu Yi mountains. It is picked and processed in the early spring, and it is completely handmade. In fact, intense labour is required to produce Jin Jun Mei, where each 100g usually contains around 10.000 handpicked and hand-rolled buds, the hard work is reflected in the price tag too, the labour and incredible flavour profile makes this the most luxurious tea in the world.
