This came as a sample in my last Yunnan Sourcing order. As usual, YS does not disappoint with the quality and the size of their samples.
Though Jin Jun Mei are usually not my favorite black teas, this one I must say hits the mark.
The scent is beautiful, and so is the color of the brew, stunning.
It has a nice body, feels thick in the mouth.
Sweet and somewhat savory, slightly salty, the main note I can detect is definitely yam or sweet potato.
It has a bit of smoke, but very subtle.
If I had one Jin Jun Mei to keep in stock, this would be the one for sure. I might purchase this.
I needed peace and focus tonight, and this tea gave me just that.
Relaxing session by the candlelight…
