This is a competition grade Jin Jun Mei made from pure buds. Although this tea looks the same as the Pure Gold Jin Jun Mei Black Tea of Tong Mu Guan Village * Spring 2017, the processing and resulting taste is totally different.

The processing of this tea is done in several stages to gradually coax out the chocolate and honey sweetness. The tea has body, strong aroma, and is bursting with flavor!

Tong Mu Guan Village near Wu Yi in Fujian is the most famous place in China for the cultivation of Jin Jun Mei and this year’s harvest (April) is among the best in recent memory.

We recommend using 85-90C water to brew this delicate and special Jin Jun Mei.
