Lao Jun Mei (Traditional Handmade)

$9.00

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.
