From AprTea

Wuyi Jin Jun Mei (金骏眉):Every 500g of Jinjun Mei tea needs tens of thousands of fresh shoots of tea buds, picking the fresh tea buds of the mountain original ecological species in Wuyishan Nature Reserve, to be completed through a series of complex withering, shaking, fermentation, rolling and other processing steps. The appearance of Jinjun Mei tea is small and tight. The color is gold, yellow, black and white. Golden for the tea fluff, buds, tight tight knot, round and straight, light body weight, uniform. Open Tang golden color, water with sweet, sweet through the incense, the bottom of the flower fruity display was unable to imitate and beyond the rare quality. Special aroma, dry tea fragrance; hot soup pure and refreshing; warm soup (45 ℃ or so) maturity and delicate; cold soup clear and elegant, high and lasting. Both hot and cold drinks are smooth, with “clear, and, alcohol, thick, fragrant” features. Even brewed 12 times, the mouth is still full of sweet, after the end of the leaves stretch, sprouts fresh, beautiful show.

This tea is almost all golden buds (Special Grade) and is supposed to be a step above the Aprtea’s Jin Jun Mei First Grade that I liked quite a bit but I was not swept off my feet by any means. And looks and smells great but tastes to subtle if you steep it Western for a minute or two. Almost like a white tea. I had to increase the steeping time to 34 minutes and the flavors emerged but the long steep brought forward strong currents of malt, dark chocolate and sweet potato and they kind a drowned that special Jin Jun Mei subtle sweetness.

It was still a good, enjoyable tea that resteeps quite well but it came off a bit unbalanced and not particularly special.
