Peter's Pick

Not often do I get really excited about new teas. Yes I appreciate all the teas I sample, some more or less but my cupping of this Chinese Wuyi grown Jin Jun Mei really got my taste buds enthused. First just looking at Jin Jun Mei says QUALITY! Then the aroma from the sample revved me higher and finally the infused tea sent me skyward. What a great tasting tea! If you enjoy quality black teas this is definitely a must try for you.

Slender with a slight twist medium sized bud only are picked. Jin Jun Mei is carefully withered, hand rolled and fired bringing out the truly wonderful flavours. Because this is a ‘bud’ plucking only it requires approximately 50,000 to manufacture 500 grams; ( 20 workers working for 1 day produces 500 grams). Yes this makes for a more expensive tea (about $.69 per cup) but well worth the extra cost. (Flavoured blacks are $.35 per cup).

Brew Ha-Ha

Black tea is a variety of tea from the Camellia sinensis plant that is a species of an evergreen shrub or small tree from the family Theaaceae whose leaves and leaf buds are used to produce 'TEA'

Black Tea is fully oxidized in comparison to others like Green, Oolong or White which are much less oxidized. Black Tea is the most popular of all the teas and the most widely consumed in the world.

Nutritional

Black tea contains:

  • alkaloids, including caffeine, theophylline, and theobromine, amino acids, carbohydrates, proteins, chlorophyll, fluoride, aluminum, minerals and trace elements, volatile organic compounds, which contribute to its odor and taste

The antioxidant effect of black tea is due to its polyphenol content. Polyphenols are chemical compounds that protect plants from ultraviolet radiation and harmful, disease-causing pathogens. Flavonoids are one type of polyphenol. They occur in grapes, red wine, and other foods.
