Tea identification…


Fully oxidized tea leaves for a robust cup.

Tea identification…

The labels on the box don't seem to be of any help.

I'd say the smell (and taste!) reminds me a bit of a jacuzzi, but more leafy. That is to say, a bit…chlorine-like, but not quite. Quite light in and not astringent.

Can you show the brewed liquor (in a white cup) and some hydrated leaf after brewing?

Far from an expert but looks a lot like a fujian black from the dry leaf alone anyway.

Jin jun mei perhaps.

Jin Jun Mei should not smell like chlorine. The odor might actually come from the packaging. You might try putting the tea in a clean tin. A day or two closed shoulpd concentrate the tea aroma.

Thanks guys.

It doesn't actually smell like chlorine, it just has a sweetness that reminds me of a warm jacuzzi. Actually quite nice. These're individual foil packets kept in a tin box.
