An Indonesian black tea harvested in the mountains of Cisujen. It draws inspiration from a famous Chinese tea called Jin Jun Mei produced in Fujian. This tea boasts a harvest of finely rolled and very regular leaves rich in buds. An exquisite tea.
A tea boasting a highly complex aromatic profile with intense floral and cocoa notes giving way to toasted, spicy and honey aromas.
In order to bring out all the aromatic complexity of this tea, we recommend multiple infusions using the traditional Chinese Gong Fu Cha method.
