The tea’s store description says “If you are looking for a daily black tea […] you won’t find a better black tea in this price tier.”. A rather bold claim… which I’m actually inclined to agree with, to my own surprise, now that I’ve tasted it. I personally haven’t had a €0,10/g black tea with this few “rough edges” in any case. It punches far above its weight.

I haven’t yet had the opportunity to try out a “real” (read: very expensive) jinjunmei, but I do have experience with a jinjunmei that was about 4 times the price, which White2Tea’s Daily JJM compares very favorably to, and with a lot of black teas in the affordable €0,05-0,15/g price bracket.

Very prominent and very sweet (flower) honey flavor, sugarcane, milk chocolate, hay, slight citrus. A pleasant, subtle bitterness if you brew it right. Less astringency than pretty much any black tea I can recall in the <€0,20/g price range. Works great grandpa style, and very decent in a gong fu session (though flavors stay pretty consistent). Will definitely get bitter if you overbrew it, but in a dark chocolate way some (..like me) might still enjoy.
It’s just a nice tea overall. Most importantly, it’s a tea that would be nice even if it wasn’t this cheap.
