Jin Jun Mei is a famous and celebrated tea from the wuyi mountains which is made solely from the buds of the tea plant. When Deng Xiao Ping (the chairman of the central advisory committee from 1982-1987) was touring Fujian, his daughter took a trip to the Wuyi Mountains and tasted Zheng Shan Xiao Zhong and asked if the tea could be made into a finer grade. This represents a finer Wuyi black tea and unlike Zheng Shan Xiao Zhong, it is not smoked. This syrupy Yi Deng or “first grade” is the second highest grade of this tea, the highest being Te Ji or “special grade”, its chi is leveling and bright and very calming with a full bodied, cacophonous, bright cacao and nutty taste and an aroma of tart cherry, fresh apricot, hints of citrus. Highly reminiscent of the healing Chaga and Reishi mushrooms; this all alongside a buttery and mineral astringency which rounds out its potent mouthfeel.
