Jin Jun Mei 'Golden Eyebrow' Lapsang


Picked from wild tea plants growing at high altitude in the Wuyi Mountains, this specific varietal was discovered by Mr Jiang Yuan Xun in 2005. In the case of this particular tea, the leaves have been smoked, creating possibly the rarest Lapsang of all. The leaves are picked in early Spring before the festival of Qing Ming. Much care goes into the production of Jin Jun Mei, apparent from the neat, slender, and tightly curled black leaves flecked with golden tips, and having a glossy appearance. Expect a smooth but robust tea with a bright maple syrup hue to the brew, and intensely aromatic. Notes of sticky molasses, honeysuckle, freshly baked pastries, and a hint of cocoa.

Very different Lapsang

Unique taste and aroma.

Delicious with a light hint that smells like honey

This tea is definitely one of my favourites. I like mine with a bit of honey in the evening. Highly recommended!

Best smoked tea I've tried

The smell of the dry leaves is very strong and leaves have a slight shine. Once brewed up the taste is smooth and delicious. This is the best smoked tea I've tried.
