From Yunnan Sourcing

Our High Mountain Jin Jun Mei is grown in the Ai Lao mountains of Yunnan at an altitude of 1800 meters! The distinct soil of Yunnan paired with the high growing altitude give this tea a strong but balanced taste and aroma.

Another excited to try tea for the amazing Sil box.

I’m a HUGE fan of JinJunMei – I don’t think I’ve met one that I don’t like – just some are better than others. This one falls into the good not great category for me. It has all the standard JinJunMei characteristics that I would expect, but none of them really shone. It was good, it was fine, enjoyable couple of cups of tea, but it just didn’t blow my socks off. I’m not even sure what it was lacking, it just fell a little flat to me.
Thanks you so much for sharing Sil :)

mmmmmm this one is from terri and THIS is a Jin Jun mei that i can get behind and am quite enjoying. There’s something about the way this one comes together being sweet with almost honey like notes and yet not falling in to the wimpy side of things. thanks a bunch for sharing terri!

Brewed in porcelain gaiwan starting at 30seconds, addiitional 10 seconds for first 4 steeps then upped by 30secs for another 3 steeps.
Wow! Delicious I’m not sure exactly what to say I think Complex would be a fitting word to use to describe this one, there are many great flavor notes in this one.

The aroma of the wet leaf is fruity sweet on the start and more floral sweet at the end, nice bold aroma all the way to the last cup.
The flavors ranged from sweet fruity and floral to almost malty with hints of cocao, slight notes of pine, pepper, grape/raisin, honey and sweet potato.
I also get a slight astringent around the 3rd and 4th steep but not in a bad way.

At times this one was reminiscent of a golden dian hong and at times it reminded me of a Kemun, a wonderful bold delicous black tea.
I’m so glad YS started doing a monthly tea box,I love ot already!

I guess it shouldn’t surprise me much that this tea wasn’t on Steepster yet since it’s from this fall.

Today has been a stinker of a Monday, but this tea is making me giggle madly (in a room by myself). It’s so good, and it is changing my outlook on my day drastically.

Let me back up a minute. This is from my first Yunnan Sourcing monthly box. It came on the best day possible (a day when I was not having a great day and getting tea in the mail helped a lot). I have been really impressed with the whole process really, from Scott’s openness to suggestion from the users here, to his willingness to substitute teas that are my liking. I must say, I feel like what I got was a very good value. These aren’t just samples guys, they are bags of tea. One of them looks like a full 100g, and another is 250g of pu. The others look to be about 25g each. I haven’t weighed them but that’s my eyeball guess.

I knew this tea was going to be good when I opened the package. Fairy dust all over, and that smell. You know the one. The magic malty yummy smell.

I’m not disappointed. The tea is delicious. I definitely need to make sure I watch for this one if it’s on sale for the holiday.

I’m so happy you liked the tea and the whole club experience. Now I just have to wait for mine. It seems to me that today was for Dark Tea Club. Haven’t heard any pu member receiving it. I’ll stop whining for now. Enjoy!
