Lao Jun Mei (Traditional Handmade)

Lao Jun Mei (Traditional Handmade)


Our Lao Jun Mei Yan Cha is made using leaves from the prized Zhengyan growing area of Wuyi Mountain.  Lao Jun Mei, which means "Old man's eyebrow " in English, is one of the more unique and fiery Wuyi Mountain teas. Four Seasons Lao Jun Mei tea infuses into a beautiful dark tea soup with a sweet aromatic woody aroma.  The flavour profile is sweet and wonderful with a hidden floral and woody note and has a silky mouth feeling with a strong, deep sweet returning aftertaste only noticeable in Zhengyan teas. This tea is available in individual 8.0 gram bags. 2023/2024 is now back in stock!
