Jin Jun Mei is a relatively new style of tea, invented in 2005 in Wuyi Mt to appeal to domestic tea drinkers in China. 20,000 buds are required to make a single kg of tea, making it one of the most time consuming teas to create.
This authentic, geographically correct Jin Jun Mei tastes almost like brown sugar when brewed as gongfu cha. Alongside the toasted wheat and nectarine, we find its complex aromatics and finish intoxicating. The farmer, Mr. Shi, consistently delivers inspiring work.
