From Harney & Sons

This is one of China’s most famous teas. Only tiny amounts are made on Junshan Island in northern Hunan Province. It is just the buds, they have been yellowed (a secret process), so that the liquor is more mellow than green teas. Yet they are still slightly sweet and a delight to drink. Please brew them in a tall glass by pouring the hot water first, then add the tea and admire how the buds slowly sink to the bottom.

This tea is quite a delight. Dry it smells nice, sweet and crisp with a hint of grassy notes. Wet it smells slightly more grassy. The taste, the taste is just wonderful. Imagine going outside early in the morning as the sun is rising on an early spring day with dew and a slight frost is on the grass. Close your eyes and smell the crispness of the air and the wet grass with the sky tinted with the rising sun and the birds chirping beautifully in the air. That’s what this tea conjures up to me, beautiful and delicious.
