There are some quiet , reserved people you meet that you are not happy about. You feel they are shy or unwell and wish they came out out of their shell and became more expressive and assertive. And then there are quiet people that are good and natural at being quiet and you like it and like being around them. And that’s this Jin Jun Mei.
IT is very balanced and hits on all notes: beautiful leaves with a large share of twisty golden tips, captivating sweet caramel and honey aroma, and a long pleasant aftertaste. Also resteeps extremely well. I had it Western style since it is very forgiving in a preparation and provides you with a delectable sweet taste full of honey, caramel and fruit. It is certainly light and reserved but perfectly balanced and quite cheerful.
I liked this tea a lot: it was the first of the Aprtea samples that I tried that I immediately went on the company’s website to check the price for a larger quantity. It is not super cheap (no Jin Jun Mei teas are) but quite reasonable and I am very likely to reorder it.
Flavors: Caramel, Fruity, Honey
