Jin Jun Mei black tea with honey notes

Rife with a natural sweetness, Oh Honey! wows with its saccharine aroma and playful notes of malt, chocolate, honey and orange. Made from tiny spring tea buds, each cup of this prized delight begs to be relished on its own – no milk or sugar needed.

Contents: Pure loose leaf Jin Jun Mei (black tea)

Origin: Mt. Huanggang, Tong Mu Guan Village, Fujian, China

Harvest: March 2019

Tasting Notes: Honey, malt, toffee, sweet, orange peel, sweet potato

The finest teas evoke a sense of place, and Oh Honey! is certainly no exception. A sip of this Jin Jun Mei (“Golden Eyebrows”) Chinese black tea fills the mouth with a thick, honey-like sweetness layered with notes of toffee, malt and sweet potato. Characteristic high mountain flavors soften the mind, transporting one to a place of comfort – a misty cliff or the depths of a quiet forest.

Grown on a small-scale, family-run tea garden in the UNESCO-protected Wuyishan National Nature Reserve, our superior-grade Oh Honey! owes its beauty to the unique geology and natural biodiversity of the land on which it’s grown. It is a particularly prized tea as it takes expert hand-labor to harvest and process the hundreds of delicate young tea buds that go into a single 30-gram package.

These artisan growing and processing techniques allow Oh Honey! to maintain its sweet, full-bodied flavor and golden color for up to ten infusions.

Gachi Grower China Oh Honey

Of China’s many famed tea producing regions, perhaps none are as renowned as the Wuyi Mountains in Fujian Province. Here, centuries-old tea trees grow wild, perched on steep, misty cliffs, and produce some of the finest tea in the entire country.

Because of the region’s unique biodiversity and natural beauty, many areas in Wuyishan are protected by the government, meaning the use of chemicals and pesticides is strictly prohibited. As a result, Wuyi gardens are in one of the few chemical-free agricultural zones in China.

Gachi’s partner growers in the Wuyishan region are a third-generation tea family that specializes in award-winning Wuyi rock oolongs as well as artisan black and white teas including our Oh Honey!, Wild Child and White Peony.

Grown on their 13 acres of land, the family’s tea is considered to be the highest grade in the area, and is grown without chemicals.

The family’s head teamaster guides the younger generations through the teamaking process, oversees every batch produced, and even hand crafts the most difficult-to-make teas himself. The teas are plucked meticulously and traditional methods are used to maintain quality standards.
