Jin Jun Mei | Golden Eyebrow Black Tea

TASTING NOTES: orange, honey on toasted bread, whiskey

Malty and honey-sweet, with the subtle fruity aroma of oranges. 'Golden Eyebrow' or 'Big Golden Tips' tea provides a uniquely rich and savory cup reminiscent of fresh-baked, whole-grain toast with a touch of sweet honeyed butter on top. The malty profiles of barley and wheat are in the foreground, followed by an aftertaste that reveals the fine bud quality of the tea through a fruity scent of oranges.

Variety: Black tea, Chinese tea Origin: Yunnan, China

Resembling a dark oolong in appearance but boasting a taste all its own, this tea has a remarkable origin story.

Bred in 1999 through a cross between a native Taiwanese tea species and a Burmese sinensis varietal, it was discovered by researchers at the Taiwan Tea Research and Extension Station to produce exceptional black tea.

Remarkably smooth on the palate, it delivers a candy-like concord grape flavor balanced by the astringency of grape skins, complemented by subtle hints of chamomile, mint, and fresh-cut flowers, reminiscent of bold Ceylon teas and vibrant, splashy colors.

Careful steeping allows for multiple balanced infusions, making it a delightful choice for those who appreciate fruity notes and delightful surprises.
