    1. Historical reasons: tea comes from China. In the past, under the condition of underdeveloped transportation, it took quite a long time for tea to be transported from China to Europe and other places, and the quality of green tea would change during this process. The green tea has a fresh fragrance, while the black tea is not affected by the inconvenience of transportation.

    Why is Jin Junmei more expensive than ordinary black tea?

    Jin Junmei was developed in 2005 by Mr. Jiang Yuanxun, the 24th generation descendant of Lapsang Souchong and his team. Jin Junmei has improved the traditional production technology of Wuyi Zhengshan Souchong. The price of high-end black tea developed with innovative technology is much higher than that of ordinary black tea. The main reasons are as follows.

    1. The raw material price of Jin Junmei is high:

    Jinjunmei is a kind of Lapsang Souchong. Its raw materials are picked in the Wuyishan National Nature Reserve. The area of ​​tea planting is not large, and the tea planting is scattered, and the cost of picking is high. Therefore, the raw material cost of authentic Jinjunmei is also relatively high. Higher.


    1. Jin Junmei has high labor cost:

    The raw materials used by Jin Jun eyebrows are all sprout tips, so workers are required to pick them from tea plants when picking. A pound of Jin Jun eyebrows needs 60,000 to 80,000 sprout tips, so the cost of making Jin Jun eyebrows is higher.

    1. Market demand leads to high prices:

    The high-end black tea developed by Jin Junmei using innovative technology not only retains the excellent characteristics of the traditional Lapsang Souchong black tea, but also innovates the shape and the inner quality of the tea on this basis. Therefore, Jin Junmei satisfies the high-end The needs of market consumers. The birth of Jin Junmei not only filled the domestic black tea market without high-end black tea, but also made the black tea market more colorful.


    Does the turbidity of the tea soup mean that the tea has deteriorated?

    When we drink black tea, we will find that the tea soup will become turbid after the tea is cold, thinking that the black tea we drink has deteriorated? In fact, the turbidity of black tea tea soup is not a manifestation of the deterioration of the tea, but a unique normal phenomenon, which is called "cloudy after cold." "Cold and muddy" is a unique phenomenon of black tea, and it is also one of the characteristics of high-quality and high-end black tea.


    Gunpowder Green Tea Factory’s high-grade black tea contains more theaflavins and thearubicins. These two substances will react with the caffeine in the tea and dissolve in the tea soup during brewing. As the temperature of the tea soup slowly decreases, the tea soup From clear to muddy, light brown or orange milky matter appears. As the temperature of the tea soup increases, the phenomenon of "muddy after cold" disappears. In the process of buying black tea, you can make a cup and wait for it to cool down to see if there is a phenomenon of "cloudy after cold" to judge the quality of black tea.
