Jin Jun Mei (lit. Golden Beautiful Eyebrow) has been the 'grand crus' of the Wuyi region since 2005. Tongmu and its surrounding plateaus boast tremendous soil acidity, clean water, and biodiversity. Jin Jun Mei is a very tippy style sprouted from the ferruginous soil 1100m high in the mountainous region.  The picking window for this tea is less than a week long and the unique withering process is one the most arduous of black tea styles. It takes nearly 50,000 hand picked buds to make 1 kilo of this tea.  

Notes of Butterscotch, Fresh Baked Bread, and Apricot.
