Honey Jin Jun Mei
I was confident when I got the aroma to open the package for the first time. And it was true. Honey Jin Jun Mei just blew my mind. The color was gorgeous, sweet and strong aroma brought me back to my childhood memory with nostalgia. Some people may think it's chocolate but it was "Ishiyakiimo (sweet potatoes roasted on hot pebbles)" to me. I enjoyed it over and over like 8 brews, could be 10! It's never got bitter. I felt so good and relaxed with it.
This is a lovey tea. I love the sweetness when brewed at lower temperatures, it’s almost like a sweet potato in flavor.
It's hard to believe that there is nothing added to this tea because it is so complex and chocolaty. Tea and Whisk had the best selection of whole leaf tea and the owner Leo is a pro at finding just the tea you'll love.
Honestly the only reason why this doesn't have 5 stars is because I'm hoping to find something I like more, but it is sooooooooo good.
This tea was most whole leaves and nice golden color. Flavor was full and typical for this black tea. May be a little more peppery than some. I enjoyed it very much. For the dollar value a good buy. If one is interested in tasting this tea I would say try it you'll like it.
