So Jin Jun Mei is known for being one of the most expensive teas. Yet this one is quite affordable, but I just don’t understand how. The photo and description on the website almost suggest a much lower quality version, which is strange, because it has all the features of a proper Jin Jun Mei (tiny hand-rolled buds, not too many pale buds, the right area and elevation), and the beautiful notes of chocolate and rose that one would expect from a high quality Jin Jun Mei (only for a very small fraction of the price)!

So I don’t know how this tea is so good for the price, but I’m completely content with this and no longer feel like I need to search for the ‘real thing’.

This tea supplier just keeps impressing me. Easily my favourite tea supplier in Australia.

This tea is just beautiful! It begins with a very earthy, woody flavour, and is then followed by a fresh burst of sweet peaches. I really regret having only bought a sample size of this one because it is now probably my favourite oolong on my shelf. I’m just smitten with it.

This tea is the tea that made me really sit up and pay attention to black teas. It’s incredibly smooth and delicate, but full flavoured, and even stands up to re-brewing. The flavour is buttery and malty, with no hint of bitterness whatsoever.

I had avoided black tea for a long time (after having only had bad black tea), but this one has got me back into black teas. However, I’m yet to find another black tea I like more than this one.

Definitely recommend.

I don’t like this at all (I’ve actually never found a mango oolong that I like, and they are two things that just seem like they would go together). There’s no freshness in this and the tea is almost undetectable. It just tastes like perfume. Bad perfume.
