One of China’s top teas, this yellow tea is given to visiting diplomats around the world. Jun Shan Yin Zhen hails from Junshan Island in the middle of Dong Ting Lake in Hunan Province. The tea gardens are surrounded by flowering trees, adding to the natural floral aroma of the tea.
Jun Shan Yin Zhen has an initial toasty flavor. The toastiness lies gently on your palette for only a few seconds before the floral and fruity notes come through. This full-bodied tea is thick and well-rounded while remaining soft and gentle.
