Jun Shan Yin Zhen
A rare find and produced in very small quantities. Jun Shan Yin Zhen Yellow Tea has been honored as the king of Yellow teas and one of Chinas Ten Famous Tea. Jun Shan Yin Zhen is a rare tea consists of only singular tender buds picked in Spring before they open and is prepared according to an ancient fermentation technique.
This Tribute Tea grows on a small island (Jun Shan) within Dong Ting Lake in Hunan Province. The local climate and soil create a special sweet fruit aroma and lightly sugarcane taste. The small growing area and skill required to make this traditional tea results in only a small quantity produced yearly. Tea drinkers should be aware that much of the Jun Shan Yin Zhen on the market is actually processed as green tea. It is also common for tea producers to cultivate from tea bushes brought in from other provinces. Our Jun Shan Yin Zhen is processed using the traditional yellow tea techniques, which takes at least 72 hours. In addition, only the local Qun Ti Zhong bush is used so you can appreciate the true quality of this exclusive yellow tea.
