Jin Jun Mei is a celebrated black tea from the Wuyi Mountains in Fujian Province, China developed in 2006.[1] It is made exclusively from the buds plucked in early spring from the tea plant. The buds are subsequently fully oxidised and then roasted to yield a tea that has a sweet, fruity and flowery flavour with a long lasting sweet after-taste.[1] The brew is bright reddish in colour.
