Its name means "gorgeous golden eyelashes", to evoke the high rate of golden buds found in this plain black tea. It was harvested in March 2021 1.500 meters high in the famous Wuyi mountains (craddle of Lapsang Souchong and "thés des roches"). It is made from the same tea trees as local Lapsang Souchong smoked teas, but it is not smoked. It tastes like honey, flowers and fruits at the same time. Its sweetness and slightly sugary taste makes it very easy to love. The next "hit tea" according to connoisseurs!

Bouquet: candied orange, passion fruit / geranium, orchid / toasted bread / honey, chocolate

Un must. Incoutournable. Un régal. Et se laisse infuser 3 fois selon les recommandations, donc que demander de plus

Les feuilles dégagent un agréable parfum de chocolat, mais ceci n’est pas confirmé dans la liqueur. J’avais en mémoire un délicieux arôme de chocolat et rose associé à un parfum de letchee pour ce cultivar, acheté ( bien plus cher) chez un autre vendeur. La liqueur à un fort arôme malté, assorti de vagues notions de fruits rouges… j’essaierai de faire varier les paramètres d’infusion, pour chercher ce parfum, caractéristique du vrai JJM
