Pure Gold Jin Jun Mei Black Tea of Tong Mu Guan Village *Spring 201 from Yunnan Sourcing

Hairy! Fuzzy! I’m NOT talking about Sasquatch! I’m talking about Pure Gold Jin Jun Mei Black Tea of Tong Mu Guan Village Spring 2016 from Yunnan Sourcing!

The dry leaves – upon opening the package – are gloriously wonderful to look at! Two-toned brown in color, thin and crimped, with fuzzy hair that adheres to your fingers when touched. Pure Gold Jin Jun Mei Black Tea of Tong Mu Guan Village Spring 2016 from Yunnan Sourcing is one of those teas I LOVE to look at.

Pure Gold Jin Jun Mei Black Tea of Tong Mu Guan Village Spring 2016 from Yunnan Sourcing is also one of those teas I LOVE to smell! Dry – it smells like caramelized brown sugar with bakey and malty scents. Once infused this smells like non-crusty baked goods…similar to muffins, perhaps! There are baked, malt, brown sugar aromas that fill my cup and I LOVE it!

Once I start sipping on Pure Gold Jin Jun Mei Black Tea of Tong Mu Guan Village Spring 2016 from Yunnan Sourcing I immediately fall in LOVE. Okay – perhaps I fell in LOVE even before I took my first sip – but this sealed the deal! On the tongue and throat this tea provided a sweeter-malty flavor with the slightest-hint of underlying smoke. But not a bitter smoke or even a smoke like you would get with a Lapsang, for example. Maybe a better visual would be the smoke left over from torching the top of creme burlee. As this cools a bit at room temperature I grow even more fonder of this. There are more malty notes that come out to play and the bakey flavors morph into a bit of crust. Yup! Pure Gold Jin Jun Mei Black Tea of Tong Mu Guan Village Spring 2016 from Yunnan Sourcing MUST go on my FAVES LIST!
