Jun Shan Yin Zhen

 

Jun Shan Yin Zhen, a yellow tea made from the delicate fuzzy buds of Hunan grown tea, on first glance could be mistaken for an aged white tea. From the complex and savory aroma it quickly becomes apparent that it is a yellow tea, with notes of hay, corn and dried tomatoes.

This tea starts out gentle with sweet notes of hay, dark honey and corn and a touch of crisp cucumber. In later steeps the taste becomes sweeter and starchier, revealing the genuine yellow tea soul of this rare tea.

This is a true connoisseur's tea that everyone should try.
