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.
