Actually, this is called Jin Jun Mei not Mai.
This kind of tea was developed in 2005. The tea leaves are collected by professional tea pickers from less than a hundred wild tea tree near the top of Wu Yi mountain. And the baking method is based on traditional Zheng Shan Xiao Zhong. Because of its low producing, it is amazingly expensive. In China, one kilo gram of authentic Jin jun Mei costs at least 3,000 dollars. Many of the Jin Jun Mei sold on the market are mixed with other kind of black tea, such as Zheng Shan Xiao Zhong
At the first three steep, you can taste subtle smell of fruit. That is the unique feature of this kind of tea.
