From Min River Tea

A yellow tea from the famed Meng Ding mountain in Sichuan, tea experts enjoy this tea for its outstanding ‘golden leaves and golden liquor’.

Picking requirements for this tea are extremely strict – it’s produced once a year, in late March, and only young shoots from the upper slopes of Meng Shan in Sichuan are used. But what makes this tea unique is the processing, employing a ‘stewing’ process that differentiates the look and taste of the tea from other green or oolongs. It’s rich, thick and vegetal tastes have a surprisingly long-lasting mouth-feel.

Good afternoon Steepster!
I am way behind on trying all the tea samples I got from swaps and elsewhere and I got some free samples today from Min River Tea that are green and yellow teas. Thanks to Min River for their generosity :)

This is the first tea I wanted to try. I haven’t had too many yellow teas in my lifetime but the ones I’ve had were very enjoyable. I steeped this one for two minutes in a regular teacup and it’s very tasty. I would definitely agree with the company’s description of:

“It’s rich, thick and vegetal tastes have a surprisingly long-lasting mouth-feel”.

It has a very light yellow, almost brothy appearance and is very refreshing in the mouth. Something about it reminds me slightly of artichoke. There’s a slight palate cleansing bitterness in the finish but nothing offensive in any way. This is a very tasty yellow tea and I’m glad I have more in my sample. I think I’ll go in for a second steep now…

p.s. second steep was yummy!
