When I went through a golden bud black tea phase. What-Cha ran out of their Jin Jun Mei, so I ordered more from this site.
I still have some of this one, and though it’s not quite as rosy or complex as What-Cha’s, it’s very satisfying. Like most teas I pick, it’s been good western, gong fu, and grandpa. More floral than I’m used to for some JinJunMei, but still heavy with the typical Fujian chocolate malt notes. I’m not sure about how their notes compare to mine, but I find a lot of changing in the malt notes and more pine in later steeps. Not sure about “dried fruit notes” yet, but I have gotten some honey-fructose sugars in some tastes. Fairly durable for a JinJunMei too.
I really like this one, but I need to write about it again when I’m focusing on it rather than powering through backlogs.
Flavors: Chocolate, Honey, Malt, Pine, Roasted
