From Yezi Tea

This smoky black loose-leaf tea is grown in the majestic Nanhu Mountain range on the outskirts of Fuqing City in the Fujian province of China. These mountains might be covered in dense fog for two hundred days a year, but one thing remains clear: for the last 250 years they have been home to some of the finest teas to come out of China.

Yi Fu Chun is an organic tea, and Yezi is proud to bring you this offering sourced, like most of our teas, directly from the farmer. You will find drinking this golden brown brew as smooth as riding in a Rolls-Royce on a newly paved highway. A light and natural sugarcane sweetness is a distinguishing characteristic of Yi Fu Chun. Notes of apple and peach add to its complex flavor.

How to brew Yi Fu Chun Black Tea tea

Amount of tea in grams Temperature in °C Temperature in °F Number of brews First brew time Use: 4-5 grams or 3 tsp. of tea Water amount: 1 gram of tea / 50-60ml of water or 1 tsp. of tea / 3 oz. of water Time of day: Afternoons or early evenings Temperature: 90-95 °C or 194-203 °F Brew: 4-5 times First brew: 20 seconds Subsequent brews: Add 10 seconds Recommended tea set: Lu Yao porcelain or glass tea set

Tea brewing is an art – and you are the artist! Just as a jazz musician adds individual touches to make a composition unique, you can add your own individual flourishes to make your tea stand out. The guidelines provided above are derived from two time-tested principles: 1) The more oxidized a tea, the higher the temperature you will need, and 2) Smaller tea pots allow for more control over the brewing process and are especially recommended for lighter teas. That said, we encourage you to experiment with the amount of tea you use, water temperature, tea utensils, and infusion times to conjure up your own “Aha!” moment.
Yi Fu Chun Black Tea is also known as…

Cantonese version of the name is Yat Fat Chun 一拂春茶

This is fairly smooth. Gently Sweet – much like a bit of sugar cane. Towards the end of the sip I can pick up on subtle peachy notes as well. First infusions hint at a bit of smoke but additional infusions the smoke flavors are diminished.

I do like this one a great deal, tho!

mmmmmm dexter sent this my way. My other half did a sneaky thing and picked up my tea yesterday but didn’t give it to me until today – he left it on the table for me to find in the morning since he knew i was working from home today. Doctor appointment this morning so it’s easier to go there and come back home than go all the way downtown. This is another yummy tea from yezi! I am digging the sweetness that it in this cup along with a sort of malty finish. mostly though, it’s just good. like nearly every yezi tea i’ve tried. nom nom nom thanks dexter!

I’m starting the morning with a random pick from my Sil-box.
This is a gentle sweet & fruity cup, not particularly bold, but nice to savor in bed. It has a peachiness to it, a lively tongue tingle, & no astringency or bitterness. Thanks Sil

I just got another round of Yezi teas in the mail and this is one of the samples I asked for. It’s definitely the lightest of all the teas I’ve tried from them. Still very flavorful but a little fruitier and less malty. A nice light afternoon tea. Super dooper smooth. Not smoky in my opinion. Definite hints of sugarcane. Overall yummy cup.

ETA: Second steep really strong peach notes! Can’t believe I can actually taste that. Really enjoying this one.

Back-story: My mother was a gourmet chef for many years and my father is an epicure; both of them have graduate degrees in the natural sciences (ie: they like the best quality foods). Needless to say, I was truly lucky and grew up with amazing food and drinks my entire life.

Before becoming vegan (about ten years ago), my favorite dessert that my mother would make was this homemade flan that knocks the socks off of the most stubborn flan haters. A perfect balance of caramel and vanilla with a mouth-feel that is almost indescribable (I guess “like buttah” will do for now…), this flan was my favorite dessert of all time. I brought some of my mother’s flan to a friend’s Thanksgiving one year – this friend’s family thoroughly dislikes flan – and everyone devoured it like ravenous coyotes. The two desserts that I loved the most from my father were his homemade whipped cream and his homemade chocolate mousse. Both were so incredibly rich, silky, and decadent. With all of these desserts, there was always such care taken in perfecting not only, the taste, but also, the presentation. Enjoying them was always just special. :)

This tea… this tea reminds me of those three desserts. As someone who no longer consumes dairy or eggs, this is an incredible treat. It’s not sweet like a flavored dessert tea, it’s just… decadent dessert. Silky, smooth, and rich; it makes me feel as though I am rewarding myself with something. I think Huang Jian is a wizard.

Wonderfully described. :-)


LOVE this description (and this tea!) and would really love the flan recipe :)

Thanks Yezi Tea for the samples! Out of the 3 samples of black tea that I requested, this is the winner for me. It’s got a slightly smoky taste but has got a sweet, yummy taste that I can’t quite place. I could drink more of this one so whenever I get to place an order, I must remember to get this one. Funny because I almost didn’t get this one because I thought I should try one of their puerh teas since otherwise you’d have to buy a whole lot of it but thought nah, the description for this lured me in more.


Ooh, I hope I nabbed this one! I don’t recall…

I drink tea to transport myself to far away lands. When I take a sip of tea crafted with intent, I find myself transported to another place. Throughout the five steepings I got in my gaiwan, I felt as if I was sitting in a rustic log cabin, the smoky fireplace keeping me warm from the cold fog hugging the mountaintop (pardon my cheesiness, I daydream too often lol)
The dry nose had strong notes of dark chocolate-covered cherry. I revisited the cherry flavor on the brew, this time they tasted more like dried cherries. I also got a toast quality as well as a molasses-like sweetness.
All in all I am glad I got more than just a sample of this tea! It’s an enchanting black tea that is not too pretentious to drink every day.

So, apparently I was the first person to make an order to Yezi on BF. I thanked them for their sale on their thread on here, and while my order didn’t qualify for free tea, the person who runs their account told me that since I was the first person, they’d send me an extra gift. I had forgotten about that until I got my package and found an ounce of this tea! :D That was so unbelievably sweet of them! I can’t get over the generosity of some people-it’s just amazing to me!
And honestly, when I looked this tea up I wasn’t sure I’d really like it. But after trying it, I was pleasantly surprised!
It’s kinda earthy, which I don’t like. But it also is creamy and tastes strongly of sweet potatoes at the same time.
I feel like so many of their teas are creamy. It really adds a lot of depth to the black teas. I really am enjoying them! And this was a fantastic free tea that I will enjoy finishing off eventually! :D Thank you, Yezi!! :D :D

Flavors: Creamy, Honey, Sweet, Sweet Potatoes


This is my favorite of their teas. Love this one


I don’t know why, but I wasn’t expecting Yezi to be such a great company when I ordered the first time. But man, I was so wrong! Really is a great company!


Nice surprise and great customer service!

This is a sample I received with my Yezi order. Thank you!

I am kicking myself for not using this sample to brew this tea GongFu. Oh well I guess that means I might just have to order an ounce of it down the road. I am drinking this as my morning cup this morning. The last cup I had was a tad weak so I made sure to let this puppy brew for a decent amount of time this morning.

This cup is malty, sweet, with a finish of fruit. I am really digging this up this morning. I read in a few tasting notes about molasses. I am definitely picking up on that. I think I have one more Yezi black tea to try, Ming Hong Black Black Tea. I will have to add this to my wishlist so I remember to pick up a sample next time.

I am so worn out! I spent the day redoing my room to make room for my newest treasure. Ben’s parents wanted to get rid of an antique writing desk that had been in their family for at least three generations, possibly four. In a near spastic fit I claimed that thing in a heartbeat, I have a real weakness for antiques and desks, so it was the double treasure. Now I just need to get another tea kettle so I can have tea in the bedroom and in the tea lair!

Today’s tea is from Yezi Tea, Yi Fu Chun, a tippy golden tea from the Nanhu Mountains in Fujian, China. Apparently these mountains are covered in a dense fog 200 days a year, meaning the tea that grows there is more or less kissed by clouds, it seems to make it a bit whimsical to me. Add the fog to my intense love of fuzzy golden teas (they are just so cute!) and that makes me a happy tea sipper, or at the very least an interested one. Oh my that is a pleasant and heavy aroma, it seems the leaves collected the dense and heavy feeling of fog rather than the wispy one. There are notes of oak wood, molasses, cocoa, and a touch of smoke. It is intense, not sweet, but more like a rich molasses cookie and cocoa powder.

After the golden leaves have been steeped (and have left their delicate fuzzies behind) the aroma is still strong in the real of molasses and chocolate, though this time it has a sweetness the dry leaves lacked, also a tiny hint of loam. The liquid is even sweeter, retaining the chocolate notes but adding in some delicious stewed plums and cherries.

I decided to do something a little different with this tea, I brewed it Western Style! The first steep is incredibly sweet, like a bit of peaches and honey mixed with my tea! There are also notes of molasses and oak wood with a slight hint of smoke at the finish. The tea manages to be very rich while maintaining an air of lightness about it.

For the second steep the aroma is sweet, with notes of stewed fruit and roasted peanuts, there is a delicate hint of smoke at the finish. The taste is much richer with notes of oak wood and roasted peanuts, this fades to molasses, and lastly a delicate hint of smoke and peaches. Kind of like the way peaches cooked on a grill tastes, this lingers as an aftertaste. This tea is delicious and very smooth, I like it!

That desk is GORGEOUS. I can’t believe they wanted to get rid of something so beautiful.


Nice desk…and really pretty secretary kitty.


Beautiful cat! I had a tortoise shell as a child as well. She adopted us. Someone abandoned her poor thing. Beautiful secretary. My aunts and uncles fought over my grandparents. Enjoy it.

I know!! I would have gotten rid of something else to make this thing fit. So silly to me.

I will have to pass along the compliments to my little fuzz ball :)
