Mount Jun Golden Coin Tea
The fragance of the dried tea leaves is out of this world - it is strong and smells wonderfully sweet and minty. The tea taste minty with a hint of nutty fragrance and the aftertaste gradually feels stronger after a few sips. This is really a special tea that is quite different from the rest. We recommend using only a quarter of the coin for every 150ml of water.
The tea leaves are compressed into the shape of a coin and wrapped in golden foil paper. Each coin is 5 grams in weight. The tea leaves are made from one-bud two-leaves but some are broken during the compression process. The infusion is golden brown in color.
