Jin Jun Mei - Winner of the North American Tea Championship

$25.00

Winner of Black Teas in the North American Tea Championship!

Jun Mei means "beautiful eyebrow" in English. 

Unlike other teas, this exquisite tea can be steeped 7 times and will not get bitter or unpleasant. Notice the delicious peak at the third steep. 

This is one of the most exquisite black teas from China. What is special about it is that unlike normal Lapsang Souchong teas, the tea leaves and buds are hand-plucked in early spring, producing only limited quantities, and are grown in the remote Wuyi Mountains - its beautiful, natural landscape provides ideal growing conditions.  You will notice that this tea has a natural sweetness, which is different from any other black tea.
