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 fiery aroma.  The flavour profile is sweet and fiery with a hidden floral note and has a silky mouth feeling with a strong sweet returning aftertaste only noticeable in Zhengyan tea. This tea is available in individual 8.0 gram bags.
