Classic Robust Jin Jun Mei Black Tea of Fujian from Yunnan Sourcing

Style: Black Tea – Region: Wuyi, Fujian, China

85 / 100 Aroma: 10/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 4/5
Mar. 5th, 2021

The aroma of this tea is amazing and complex! The reason I only give it an 85 is because the taste is just a bit harsh for me, it's just slightly bitter and astringent. Overall it's not so bad though and if you aren't as sensitive to astringency as me you'd probably absolutely love this tea! Besides the issues with mil...

Best tea ever!! At least for me, since I love grain based teas like barley and buckwheat. This tea is green tea mixed with toasted brown rice and it really does give the tea this amazing malty, nutty flavor that I love! The tea is very warming and cozy and not astringent at all. The price is great as well! definitely r...

Feb. 25th, 2021

This tea is pretty good but not my favorite. It doesn't have a strong aroma but it smells nice like normal tea. The taste is pretty good but a tiny bit harsh for me as it has a slight amount of bitterness which I don't like as much. Still, It is a very smooth and easy to drink tea because it is so high quality so even ...

Wonderful example of a Keemun tea! Keemun isn't my favorite type of tea which is why I rated it a bit lower but out of all the ones I've tried this one is my favorite. The aroma is nice and complex and the taste is smooth. The value is amazing too, its really cheap!

Jan. 31st, 2021

This is a really great tea, it has a complex aroma and flavor. This type of tea is normally expensive but this one is cheaper yet the taste is perfect. And of course, as you all know my biggest issue with teas is ones that are too astringent, and this tea was not astringent at all so it's perfect!

The aroma of this tea wasn't very strong at all. The taste was smooth but there wasn't really much else interesting about it. Still, it's an easy to drink agreeable tea.

Jan. 28th, 2021

The aroma is just a classic bready black tea smell which is very nice however it lacks complexity and was very one-noted. The taste on the other hand was incredibly smooth and was one of the least astringent teas I've ever had (which is a good thing for me). The taste wasn't extremely complex but the flavors it did hav...

The first thing I notice about this tea is the very comforting aroma it has. It smells and tastes sort of like freshly baked bread. It is a very smooth and easy to drink tea while still being very flavorful and interesting. It's thick bodied and it is not astringent at all which I really like.

Jan. 3rd, 2019

This tea is really strange! It basically just tastes like sour lime water. It’s not bad but it’s definitely not my preference when it comes to herbal teas. This would be a good tea for someone who loves sour/limes or if you want to make and iced tea with sugar to be like limeade. It tastes good for what it is but u...

The main aroma I get from this tea is the lemongrass which I enjoy. The flavor of this tea is mainly the sour lemony flavor from the lemongrass along with the fresh taste from the peppermint. Overall this tea is very fresh and zingy but still mild and pleasant to drink. I normally am not crazy about peppermint teas but...

I'm not super crazy about the aroma of this tea, it has that weird turmeric smell. But the smell is very mild and it's really the taste that matters most. I've never had a turmeric tea before, but this one tastes pretty good to me. It is rich and smooth and has a unique flavor from the turmeric. If you've had turmeric ...

The first thing I notice about this tea is how very strongly it smells like cinnamon, I really like that smell. The dominating taste is definitely the cinnamon and also the cardamom. This is a very intense herbal tea and I wouldn't drink it for relaxation, but I would definitely drink it other times like in the morning...

I really love this tea! It does actually kind of smell like caramel like the name would suggest, it is a pleasant aroma and no too strong. This tea is very smooth and thick-bodied and relaxing to drink. It seems pretty high quality and all the flavors in the tea work really nicely. It is neither bitter nor astringent w...

This is a pretty decent tea. It is very smooth and easy to drink because it has little bitterness and astringency. The mint and green tea go really well together. Normally I'm not so crazy about mint teas but this one mixed with green tea is really good. I get that nice mint flavor without it being too overwhelming. Th...

The aroma smells strongly of licorice but it also has a musty smelling undertone, I really enjoy that! The first ingredient of this tea is licorice root which I normally really love in herbal teas because of its natural sweetness, but this one tastes kind of weird and and the sweetness of the licorice overpowers any ot...

This tea smells pretty good and fruity, it doesn’t smell artificial like some fruit teas do. Unfortunately the taste just isn’t doing it for me though. I wouldn’t say it’s terrible, it’s just a bit too sour for my taste and it also leaves a weird sensation in my throat after drinking it (sort of an astringent...

This tea has a mild roasty and vegetal aroma which I enjoy. The flavor is pretty good and also has a kind of roasted quality to it. I enjoy this green tea because it is very smooth and is definitely less astringent than many other green teas I’ve had. It still does have a slight astringent aftertaste in my throat but...

The first thing I notice about this tea is how fruity it smells! It smells like cherrys in specific, true to its name. I enjoy the aroma and wasn’t expecting it to smell that strong! This tea is also extremely flavorful and a bit sour because of the cherry, I really like that. It is also really smooth and not astring...
