Jingxian Jin Jun Mei
This tea from Anhui Province was produced in the style of the great Chinese black teas, Jin Jun Mei or 'beautiful golden eyebrows'. Gently rolled fine leaves and buds express an amazing wealth of herbaceous (tobacco), floral and woody fragrances. Its liquor is soft and has a slightly powdery texture giving it volume and body. Nuances of cocoa and leather give way to a volatile finish evocative of mustard seed. A complex and refined tea!
