Only the second yellow tea I’ve tried (hey, Steepster, where’s the option for yellow teas?).

Teas like this are the type that make me wish I had a better tea vocabulary. After all, how many times can you describe a green or white (or, indeed, yellow) as “subdued” or “mellow.” Jun Shan Yin Zhen is fuller than a classic style white tea like a Bao Hao Yin Zhen (interestingly, this tea is also referred to as “Silver Needle”) and there’s an ever-so-slight smokiness that really adds some amazing depth.

I should also note that the uniformity in the size of the leaves is fascinating. It’s clear that there’s a lot of work that goes into the production of this rare tea.

Had a nice glass of this tea iced this afternoon. I think I might have brewed it a bit strong…

Forgot to log this last night. While I only had one cup, I brewed up two full pots to put in a jar to make iced tea. It makes for a good cold tea and is quite refreshing. An interesting experiment I tried a while back was crushing up a mint Altoid and mixing it into a bottle of this iced tea. It gives it a bit of a kick.

A definite favorite, and probably the white tea I have the most. Drank some this evening while unwinding after work.
