Transparent Pricing / True Cost of Jin Jun Mei
The raw material of Jin Jun Mei originates from the national nature reserve of Wuyi Mountain, and the altitude needs to be within the range of 1200-1500 to be authentic Jin Jun Mei.
Due to the reputation of Zheng Shan Tang in Tongmu, most of the tea farmers here will sell the tea green to Zheng Shan Tang.
Even so, the purchase price of a catty of fresh leaves is up to 900 yuan(RMB).
2.5kg of fresh leaves make 500gram of dry tea.
This is equivalent to the raw material cost of one catty of Jin Jun Mei, which costs 4,500 yuan.
This does not include processing, finishing, packaging, inspection and market development.
The production of 500gram of Jin Jun Mei requires 60-80,000 buds, and a skilled female tea picker can only pick up to 2,000 a day.
This is why the price of good tea must not be low.
So you can imagine how the quality of Jin Jun Mei on the market.
