From Yunnan Sourcing

Our Premium grade “Jin Jun Mei” is Spring 2015 harvest from the Wu Yi mountains of Fujian. Wu Yi Shan is well know for it’s rock oolongs (like Da Hong Pao, Tie Luo Han and others), and black teas. A long tradition of tea craft in Wu Yi combined with unique soil and growing conditions gives this black tea a special taste.

Small leaf varietal tea leaves are picked wilted and then oxidized in small batches. The tea is sweet and malty and brews a copper red tea soup!

Pure chocolate heaven! If you have ever made a really good hot chocolate with water then this is spot on. Nice rich thick mouth-feel with a pleasant sweetness that lingers long after the last sip. The undertones I get are very floral, almost like a chocolate rose ice cream.

Looking forward to trying a fresher Jin Jun Mei to compare. I used lower temprature water than I would usually use for a black because of the delicate nature of this tea.

A lovely Chinese black with the typical malt and sweet potato flavor. There’s also a hint of chocolate and molasses.

One of my favorite parts about this tea is the earthy flavor, which makes the brew taste more like a dirty sweet potato. While that may sound disgusting, I rather enjoyed it.

Unlike the other Chinese blacks I have tried, there was some bitterness and drying in the back of the throat, which made me have to knock a few points off my score.
