From Vicony Teas

Lapsang Souchong
Also known as Golden Junmee, Jin Jun Mei, the newest member of Lapsang Souchong, was created in 2005. Made of only tender buds, the exquisite black teas is seen as the high-end Lapsang Souchong and one of the most expensive teas in China. Jin Jun Mei tea comes from the Wuyi Mountain, Fujian province. In the July of 2005, Mr. Jiang Yuan Xun, the general manager of Wu Yi Zheng Shan tea company accompany guests from Beijing to the Wuyi National Nature Reserve around 1800 meters above sea level. It was Early Spring and tea buds were sprouting vigorously. The guests suddenly asked why not make some black tea of only buds? The buds were then sent to Tongmu village where the first black tea in the world, Lapsang Souchong, was created about 400 years ago. The tea master Mr. Liang Jun De conducted the experiment by himself, It was made by the traditional Lapsang Souchong production methods combined with improved technique and skills. The tea was finally finished with a brand new black tea Jin Jun Mei.

Jin Jun Mei is made of only tea buds. Delicately twisted leaves with a high concentration of golden tips distinguishes this tea from other black teas. The quality of the tea really shines through in this absolutely gorgeous black tea. The tea itself is stunning in its beauty, with tippy golden leaves that smelled malty yet bright. This tea brews up into a deep red color, that holds a very bold, deep and crisp flavor. Be careful not to overbrew it. A full-bodied infusion deep red with a honey-like sweetness, a subtle milkiness and light coppery finish. It has a nice taste and does not need anything added to it.

10 second steeps on this one! Malt, honey, sweet potatoes, and light smoke. This is an amazing tea. The first day I had this I could smell it the rest of the day. I had to brew it again right away. I had four 12oz mugs. It would have gone more. If you are interested I have a longer review on my blog.

I really wish that I had time to sit down and enjoy my jinjun mei, but my internship is winding down, and I’m super busy trying to get as much done a possible…

@ Scharp, if you don’t like it, I know where you can send it ;)
@ Joshua, that has kind of been my problem lately. Too busy to enjoy tea is too busy.

This is the last sample supplied to me from my first order with Vicony Teas. Thank you Mr. Richard Zhang for the free sample! This tea is not a smoked Lapsang Souchong, but still carries a small smoky hint in the leaves.

Leaf Quality
The golden color of these leaves told me that it was made of buds. The dried leaves themselves smelled floral. When I first saw these leaves, my first thought was that they were thinner than Angel Hair Pasta! The brewed leaves smelled chocolaty, as did the other Lapsang I tried from this company.

Brewed Tea
The chocolate aroma of this tea was more pronounced than that of the previous one I tried. It also had a great floral aroma. The color of the brew was a dark amber. What a wonderful tea!

The taste was also sweet, and had a slight smell of tree bark. I really liked this tea.

Overall, I’m very happy with the teas supplied by Vicony Teas Company. I will be ordering from them in the future.
