This highly aromatic black tea from Fujian is one of M. He’s recent experimentations. Skilfully transformed following the Chinese methods for black tea, the Jin Guan Yin (a cultivar from the Wuyi Mountains normally used for wulong production) reveals an exceptionally smooth and fruity profile.
Produced before the lockdown in India, this early lot from Goomtee’s old seed plants was transformed in the classical style typical of this garden. Dating back to the late 19th century, the Goomtee Tea Estate has more than enough experience to produce a great tasting cup.
These long mature leaves undergo a unique transformation in their home of Hou Keng village.
