Jin Pin black loose-leaf tea comes from China’s famed Nanhu Mountain range, which is covered nearly year-round by a dense layer of fog. In addition, the extreme difference between daytime and nighttime temperatures there creates the ideal conditions for growing high-quality tea.

In Chinese, Jin Pin means gold personality. It is no coincidence that the brew produced by Jin Pin is a dark orange color. The tea produces a strong, smoky flavor with contrasting tones of chocolate and caramel. Yezi is able to bring you the finest-quality Jin Pin tea because of our collaboration with farmer Huang Jian. For the last 250 years, the Nanhu Mountain range has been home to some of China’s highest-quality organic teas, and we are confident that you’ll take just one sip and say, “I agree.”

I brewed a pot of this tea before serving Szechuan fried chicken and shrimp. The tea paired well with the dish, and had a night subtle softness to the flavor that cut the spice of the dish quite nicely, not to mention the beautiful reddish hue of the tea itself. Highly recommended

Very delicious tea! The contrast between the light toasty smoke and cocoa caramel is really tasty! Jin Pin is easy to drink, but also it encourages you to stop and savor its earthy aftertaste. Long steeps taste great too, a later steeping of mine also had some great woodsy notes! A keeper!
