The highest grade of Lapsang Souchong is called Jun Mei or Beautiful Eyebrow (in English) because the processed tea leaf resembles an eyebrow. Jun Mei can be further categorized into Gold (Jin) and Silver (Yin) grade; we are carrying the Gold. What is special about Jun Mei Souchong is that unlike other Lapsang Souchong, it is processed using tender, full tea leaves and buds harvested in early spring before the Qing Ming festival.

This tea is also known as Zheng Shan Souchong. Zheng Shan means "Original Mountain" and only tea leaves picked from Wuyi (Tong Mu Guan) harvest area can be called as "Zheng Shan". These tea leaves have a special characteristics in that they have a subtle hint of a sweet fruit in China called "longan".
