Okay, I’ve never had a silvery jun mee before so trying this one out from Upton today. The leaves are dark with some silvery bits so perhaps that’s where the name came from.
It’s very intriguing but I can’t quite place the flavor. I am definitely getting the cocoa with a bit of sweetness. There is a bit of smoke in the finish but it seems quite subtle. It also isn’t quite as hefty as a keemun. This is an easy one to drink plain but could also accommodate a splash of soymilk, or regular milk… but it really has no bitterness or astringency that I am picking up. That is a definite plus for the folks like me with sensitive tummies. I liked this but am not necessarily sure I need more. Will have to think on that one!
