1. King of Yellow teas 2.Thick, needle-shape tea buds 3.Delicate aroma with a hint of floral notes
Other names:Mount Jun Silver Needle
Honored as the king of Yellow teas and one of China’s Ten Famous Tea, this rare and precious yellow tea was sent to Russian President Vladimir Putin as China’s National Gift earlier this year (2006).
The tea originates from Jun Shan Island (also known as the Island of Immortals) of Lake Dong Ting in Hunan Province. The yearly production of this tea is very limited, using only before and early Qing Ming harvest.
Tea leaves picked after this period were processed into other teas such as Jun Shan Mao Jian and Jun Shan Lu
Jun Shan Yin Zhen was an Imperial Tribute tea back in the ancient days, and is also well-known as Chairman’s Mao favorite tea.
Taste: Delicate aroma with a hint of floral notes. The taste is smooth, light and sweet at first sip but finishes with a fleeting smoky taste. This smokiness is only apparent in the first infusion and is not offensive at all. If anything, we feel that it actually adds character to the tea and makes the sweetness stands out even more in later tasting. After a few cups, you will still be able to feel the light sweetness in your mouth.
Appearance: Jun Shan Yin Zhen consist of thick, needle-shape tea buds that look dry and almost like an aged tea. However, this is all due to the processing method - the tea is very fresh, as you can obviously tell from the taste.
Origin: Jun Shan, Hunan Province
Harvest Period: Spring
Jushan Silver Needle Tea Introduction:
Authentic Jun Shan Yin Zhen is amongst the rarest of China’s famous teas. As the only example of Yellow Tea on China’s list of most famous tea, it is the foremost representative of this endangered art form. Its restricted growing region and painstakingly complex labor required by its production restrains the output of genuine Jun Shan Yin Zhen to a total of only five hundred kilograms each year.
No.3 tea in China, Junshan Silver Needle, a famous kind of brown tea in China. Junshan is an island on Dongting Lake of Hunan Province in middle China. The land is fertile, and the weather is humid, quite suitable for growing tea. Junshan Silver Needle tea leaf has very long silvery, downy tips. Most of the big leaves have been removed by pickers. It has a wonderful bouquet, shows repeated scenting, and produces a soup that is truly delicious.
We recommend using glass-based or porcelain tea ware. Rinse tea cup and teapot with hot water.
Use about 2 grams of tea leaves (1-2 teaspoons) for every 150ml of water.
Steep tea leaves in hot water at 85°c (185°F) to 90°c (194°F) for 1 minute for the first and second brewing.
Gradually increase steeping time and temperature for subsequent brewing.
