About Golden Horse Eyebrow (Jin Jun Mei)

Golden Eyebrow is a kind of Lapsang Souchong. It is produced in Wuyishan City in Fujian province.

Golden Eyebrow is expensive because the whole production process must be carried out by hand. Every 500g of Golden Eyebrow contains tens of thousands of very fresh tea buds, without any leaves. These buds are picked from trees in Wuyishan Nature Reserve. Only the finest buds are picked; even a professional tea picker can only collect up to 500g a day.

Brewing Guide

3 teaspoon(s)

90-95°C (125ml)

1-2 mins


6 tsp

90-95°C (250ml)

1-2 mins


12 tsp

90-95°C (500ml)

1-2 mins


To brew, if using a Gaiwan Gongfu style, infuse 3 teaspoons Golden Eyebrow Tea for 125ml teacup/gaiwan in hot water (90–95℃) for around 15 seconds for the first brew, extending the infusion time for the following brew. If not using a Gaiwan Gongfu style, infuse 3 teaspoons Golden Eyebrow Tea for 125ml teacup , 6 teaspoons for 250ml glass, or 12 teaspoons for 500ml teapot steep for 1–2 minutes. Do not use boiling water because it will destroy the vitamin C and other contents of the leaves. It will also accelerate the precipitation of phenolic substances such as caffeine and tea polyphenols, which will make tea taste sour and bitter.

    A delicious tea. Steeped it three times, still tasty and aromatic on third steep, however first steep was the best full flavour.

    An amazing quality, hand-made tea with all the character and complexity you’d expect. Produces a stunning pot of tea when brewed in accordance with the instructions, and it’s packed full of vitamin C to keep your immune system healthy – who could ask for more? What a treat!
