It is really good and I think I brewed it right.
Love it 😍
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.
One can definitely taste the quality. However, I'm not partial towards any greener oolong. I was hoping I'd like this one. The two stars are due to my dislike of green oolongs, but others who enjoy a greener flavor may like this one.
Probably my favorite sencha. Such a good clean flavor with umami.
I'm actually not one for senchas. I like some green teas but it's not my tippy top favorite.
This sencha is an all rounder tho. I can leave it brewing and it tastes amazing. I've brewed it in porcelain, clay, and glass. All turned out pretty well. Also brew it more than 5X and the flavor and feel were still there, which is pretty rare for green teas I've had before.
I would definitely put this tea as my go to for green teas I would share with others, tho I also want to hoard it just for myself.

This tea is the perfect end to a busy day - we relax with this tea every day in the late afternoon and it’s a wonderful way to transition to evening. The taste is so beautifully subtle, mild and pleasing - I’ve ordered it before and will order it again!
I’ve brewed this at least 15 times and it’s still going! Seems to prefer boiling water and longer brew times than the typical gongfu steep time. The tea is sweet and just a little thick, almost like agave - really great for a busy day at work!
Got it as a daily drinker. It hits the spot every morning. Will probably have to reorder again soon. 😊🙌
wonderful product and a great tea shop !
This was the one tea I have purchased that I did not like it has a strong grassy taste
Although I wouldn’t choose to drink it Gongfu style, this tea is great to make sweet drinks, from a basic ice tea to tea lattes and a great tea for making kombucha!
