From Goldfish Tea

Golden Eyebrow (translated from the Chinese name Jin Jun Mei) is made out of bud tips. These bud tips are picked from the original souchong tea trees at 1500-1800 meters high in Wuyi Mountains.

The tea itself has a nice appearance, small and dense with a combination of gold, yellow and black mixed together. It is a very sweet tea with a fruit, honey, flower and sweet potato fragrance. It has a long-lasting flavor, even after steeping 10 times it remains sweet.

The differences between Lapsang Souchong and Golden Eyebrow
The most prominent difference between the two teas is the processing method. The traditional Lapsong Souchong will undergo a smoking process. Therefore, the Golden Eyebrow doesn’t have the smoky smell that Lapsang Souchong has (Note here that if we talk about Lapsang Souchong, we talk about the western variety, the Lapang Souchong in China consist of whole leaves and is not smoked). They are also different in raw material, appearance, fragrance, color and taste.
1. Raw material
The Golden Eyebrow is only made out of high quality bud tips.
2. Appearance
The Golden Eyebrow is longer and tighter than Lapsang Souchong. The color has a brighter gold with yellow and black also mixed together. The Lapsang Souchong we know in the west is often very black.
3. Fragrance
The Golden Eyebrow has not only a fruit fragrance but also strong flower fragrance. The Golden Eyebrow can be steeped 10 times and the fragrance will still remain.
4. Color
The Golden Eyebrow tea itself is relatively light, golden yellow color.
5. Taste
It tastes sweet, mellow and full without a hint of smoke.

This was the final tea that I tasted while at the Goldfish Tea shop. I have been drinking a lot of the “Precious Eyebrows” Chun Mee from recently, so the association piqued my interest. However, the teas could not be more different.

First off, this is a black tea. And there is no mistaking that fact when you take your first sip! It is robust with a full flavor that sparkles its way up into your nose and back down your windpipe. Yet for a black tea, there is definitely a delicate side to it and after a few sips, the flavor really mellows out. There is a complex sweetness to it that combines just a hint of floral nectar with some broad dessert flavors.

Tasting Notes: Leather, earthy carob, hazelnut, chocolate cake, caramel, lilac, celery.
