Wild Jin Jun Mei Black Tea from Wu Yi Mountains * Spring 2018
Brand: Yunnan Sourcing Tea Shop
Jin Jun Mei growing wild and unmanaged in the Wu Yi Mountains of Fujian. This Jin Jun Mei grows in the same areas as Wu Yi's famous Rock Oolongs and has that same mineral sweetness and flower aroma. Being traditionally processed Jin Jun Mei but from a biodiverse environment gives this tea a strong character both in terms of taste and overall feeling. Strong full mouth feeling, viscous, and expansive. Notes of dark chocolate that comes and goes, mineral and sweet with some floral and peppery notes. Difficult to describe the experience of drinking this tea! Just try it!
Recommend brewing with 85-90C water and using very short infusions at first.
Late-April 2018 Harvest
Wu Yi Township in Fujian Province
