Our premium Jin Jun Mei Lapsang Golden Eyebrow holds the distinction of being the world's rarest Lapsang (smoked) Chinese black tea, and is subject to incredibly high standards to ensure its consistency and fine quality.

Our Jin Jun Mei Lapsang Golden Eyebrow comes from a rare species of wild tea that grows at a high altitude in China's Wuyi Mountain range. It is picked before Qing Ming, and is highly labour-intensive to gather, much pride and care goes in to this fine craft production! Jin Jun Mei Lapsang Golden Eyebrow’s leaves are slender, tightly curled gold flecked black leaves and tips. Its heady smoked aroma lends the blend an interesting mysterious quality.

Once steeped, it produces a maple syrup golden tea liquor with a rich and aromatic taste of cocoa, honey, baked goods, molasses, and a hint of honeysuckle; and no bitterness whatsoever.

For the best tea drinking experience, we recommend using a gaiwan and enjoying multiple infusions.

This is how to do it:
1 TSP or 1 BAG
2 - 3 min

Im drinking and LOVING this as I write this. Cant get enough. It just bumped my all time favorite Lapsang out of the number one slot. GORGEOUS tea, light woodsy smoke scent and delicate smoke flavor. Not overpowering, but warm and comforting. Great mouth feel. Full and thick. Smooth. Not a bit bitter . Just a nice edge as I hate astringent tea like Greens. But this has depth to it. Almost tastes like a buttery fresh cookie . Of my 200 plus teas, this one is now number one.

I enjoy smokey teas in general, but this is something else. The smell of the leaves is a delicious sweet smoke with a subtle hint of rich tea behind it. The smokiness isn't as strong in the cup, but the tea is very well balanced.
This will be my new daily tea, highly recommend

As previous reviewers have noted, this tea (or the smoky style of tea in general) is not for everyone. That said, I have really enjoyed this for its blend of headiness and delicacy. An occasional problem with Lapsang is that the base material (i.e. the leaves) is often an inferior quality tea, with the smoke simply masking the faults. Not so here - the flavor is neither short nor harsh. There is an exotic, musky quality to the overall flavor, and the smokiness complements these attributes rather than covering them up. As a prior reviewer wrote, the second infusion loses some of the finesse of the first, but that's to be expected. This is rather unique, and I expect it will be too "busy" for some palates, but I give five stars without hesitation.

This is my new favorite tea. A long time drinker of Lapsang, I gave this one a try. It is far more delicate. A nice smokiness introduces you to hints of caramel and vanilla. In some ways, it’s like a nice caramel Asam combined with a Tarry Souchong, two of my favorites. More refined and nuanced, I switch between cream and no cream to have different experiences. It’s at least worth a shot, and you just might move away from a traditional Lapsang.
