From Verdant Tea

This beautiful golden, buddy Jin Jun Mei is a classic Chinese ideal: perfectly sweet, smooth and clean with bright honey afteraste and lingering, creamy texture.

Impossible to oversteep, the most prominent aromas and flavors of this tea are centered around the theme of honey, vanilla and light airy cream. While light and delicate upon initial sip, the beauty of this tea reveals itself in aftertaste and texture. Those perfectly exemplify a classic ideal for Chinese black teas, with sweet honey flavor and creamy texture lingering on the tongue. Mellow hints of apple come through in later steepings, along with an airy hint of delicate florals and pine.

I am FINALLY getting around to opening this pouch. My schedule has been so off lately that I haven’t been drinking too many teas with caffeine. I really need to sip down some of my collection since it’s bursting at the moment.

The dry leaf is very pretty – golden strands mixed with black, very tightly wrapped around each other. The scent of this tea after it’s steeped weirdly reminds me of the English Breakfast tea of my childhood – thick, milky and sugary.

Sipping… mmm.. quite delicious! What I notice first is the sweetness of the cup. It’s smooth and yet only the slightest bit earthy, sharp. I detect a bit of hay, sweet potato and perhaps a bit of pepper in the aftertaste. I also love the mild milk tone that I’m getting throughout the entire cup. It’s not that the tea is creamy, but smooth with a flavor that reminds me of a glass of milk.

While I did enjoy this cup, I didn’t find the flavor notes that I was hoping to find.. vanilla, cream. I’m not sure that I would go out of my way to find this one again, but it is enjoyable!
