Origin: China


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 a real smoky tea, you can smell it through the package. It kind of stinks First brew is real smoky, second brew with same leaves just taste like regular tea. This not one I would be again.

I dunno... Some seem to like this. The leaves are smoky, but there's some other weird aroma there I've never before encountered in any tea. Once brewed, it's not really smoky anymore—just that off-putting flavour remains. Not for me. Try it and see what you think...?

A lovely tea in every way. If you don't care for the heavily smoked Lapsang, try this delicate tea. Lovely leaves produce a cup that is complex with a thick mouthfeel and rich aromas of baking bread, bacon, cocoa with a lightly sweet finish. Tealyra's description is right on. Be gentle with this tea and use short multiple infusions to enjoy this tea's subtle layers.

Personally, I"m not a fan of the "smokey" flavored teas. If one could "sip" the aroma of a campfire (that or burning leaves) that would be the flavor. Again, my rating is highly personal. It still deserves a 3 star because the quality of the tea was good, as usual for Tealyra.

Unbelievable, best Lapsang Souchong I ever had. Smoked for lovers but so complex and sweet in it's taste and absolutely no bitterness..
For me it's gonna be hard to go back to traditional Lapsang Souchong after this one.
