Jin Jun Mei is a tea I have only tried a couple of times, and could not remember anything about. I was delighted to try this one from the wonderful Baraka Teas out of London.
These feather-light golden colored tiny leaves! I had forgotten this is a black tea and so was surprised when the very first steep came up a lovely and lively reddish color and the taste was thick baker's chocolate! The qi is strong on this one, two steeps and I am sweating and more than a little elated.
I used four grams in my Petr Novak shibo which I believe is 100ml, and guessed the water temp at about 208f. Flash-steeps were employed as I could tell from the second the water hit the leaves, before I had even put the lid on that the brew was going to be strong and come on fast. Even the rinse was full-bodied and delicious!
