Jun Shan Yin Zhen

Though it shares the 'silver needle' portion of its name with a famous white tea, the darkness of the leaf buds and the particular tinge their downy white hairs have taken on indicates something even rarer: the most refined of one of the few yellow teas.

The sweet starchiness of malted grain in its liquor is livened by a salty touch and a subtle note of dried ginger. Along with a distinct hay flavor and mild astringency, it seems a tea perfectly suited for crisp autumn weather. A unique and unmissable experience for the tea connoisseur.

GONGFU CHA METHOD
  • Quantity: 3g / 100ml
