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.
