From Tealyra

Our Jun Shan Yin Zhen Yellow Tea is fresh and aromatic; it was produced and harvested in very small quantities and in strict limited supply! Honored as ‘the king of yellow teas,’ Jun Shan Yin Zhen Yellow Tea is a tribute tea that grows only on one small island (Jun Shan) within the Dong Ting lake in Hunan Province. Our Jun Shan Yin Zhen Yellow Tea is directly sourced and guaranteed authentic, not produced artificially from processed green teas!

Produced from single young buds harvested in the spring before they fully open, Jun Shan Yin Zhen Yellow Tea is then fermented in the traditional yellow tea method. This produces a pale yellow coloration when steeped in hot water. Our Jun Shan Yin Zhen Yellow Tea distinctive, sweet, with a delicate fruit aroma and has a slight hint of sugarcane in the top notes.

An absolute must try for any tea lover!

I know there has been radio silence on my end for the past four days, but I’ve been extremely busy. For one thing, I got a promotion and was transferred into a new position. I’m still in the hated old position part-time until my transfer formally goes through in July, but for now, I can deal with that, even though my time is severely limited due to longer hours. Despite the change, I’m continuing to grow restless in my field. I’m not happy with my employer. There is just too much bad blood and distrust between us, so at this point, I don’t know how long I will remain despite my recent good fortune. I’m investigating some other opportunities. I’ll keep everyone posted. Back to the task at hand, this was the tea I worked my way through over the last four days. Honestly, it wasn’t bad, but I found it to be lacking in oomph.

I prepared this tea gongfu style. After a very quick (on/swirl/off) rinse, I steeped 6 grams of loose tea in 4 ounces of 185 F water for 5 seconds. This infusion was followed by 13 subsequent infusions. Steep times for these infusions were 7 seconds, 10 seconds, 15 seconds, 20 seconds, 25 seconds, 30 seconds, 40 seconds, 50 seconds, 1 minute, 1 minute 15 seconds, 1 minute 30 seconds, 2 minutes, and 3 minutes.

Prior to the rinse, the dry tea leaves emitted pleasant aromas of butter, chestnut, grass, honey, and straw. After the rinse, aromas of cream, hazelnut, sugarcane, and nectar joined the fray. The first infusion brought out bamboo and a touch of nougat. In the mouth, the tea liquor was sweet, smooth, and mellow, offering up dominant notes of roasted chestnut, cream, butter, honey, nectar, grass, bamboo, and straw. Subsequent infusions allowed sugarcane, hazelnut, and nougat to shine, while mineral, cooked lettuce, and subtle pistachio impressions emerged. The later infusions were heavy on mineral, butter, cream, and lettuce notes with underlying hints of grass, nuts, and bamboo.

This tea blew me away at first, but began to lose its aromas and flavors quickly. By the end of the session, I was bored and more than ready to move on to something else. Overall, this wasn’t bad, but it failed to sustain my interest.

This sounds amazing. I might have to order from them one day soon. Too bad the shipping is variable though, if I can’t meet the min purchase for free shipping…
Congrats on the promotion!! Fingers crossed it all works out in your favour, whether you stay or leave :)
