This Jin Jun Mei was grown in feng shui guang garden on the border of Fujian and Jiangxi, where the altitude is over 1000m, surrounded by clouds and fog.
This is a top grade Jinjunmei, made entirely of buds, is soft and bright. A perfect tea to curl up with. Grab a blanket and a book, or if you are too busy, let this tea evoke that world for you as you work.
Part of the charm is the look and feel. I love the way the dry leaves, the little fully oxidized buds, cling together and feel like they're still damp. I also love the variety of tastes it brings to the palate, with honey and fermented flavors. The lingering sour puckers my cheeks into a smile.
Good as bowl tea, loose in a cup, or as a gongfucha tea: surprises of each steep layering with delightful energy.
