First invented in 2005, Jin Jun Mei was originally created as a close alternative for Chinese who couldn't appreciate the flavor of the robust smoked Lapsang Souchong black tea that Westerners tend to enjoy. Jin Jun Mei debuted the same year as the unsmoked version of Lapsang Souchong. The main difference between them is that Jin Jun Mei is made exclusively of the buds, whereas unsmoked Lapsang Souchong uses two leaves to one bud.

The translation of this tea into English may be confusing - "Golden Steed Eyebrow" - but there's nothing confusing about the taste! Deep chocolate notes lead to a full-bodied tea that's almost thick like honey, leaving a sweet aftertaste.
