Junshan YinZhen 2011
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.
