Jin Jun Mei

photo of Jin Jun Mei black teaJin Jun Mei
Jin Jun Mei is a noble version of Lapsang Souchong, a traditional black tea (Hong Cha) from Wuyi. For Jin Jun Mei, unlike traditional Lapsang Souchong, only the tender leaf buds are used. The leaf buds give the tea a golden glow and an incredibly fruity and honey-like aroma. Due to the very early harvest and the use of the pure leaf buds, the ingredients are extremely concentrated and allow to make an extraordinary amount of infusions.
The almost inaccessible tea growing area makes industrial production virtually impossible and so this tea is still harvested by hand. The manufacturer also produces out of conviction purely biological. This is also promoted by the government since Wuyi Shan is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and it should remain like this. The Wuyi mountain range stretches at an altitude between 200 and up to 2058m and have a mild climate with an average temperature of 21°C.
