This is a genuine Junshan Yinzhen (Silverneedle from Mount Jun) of top-quality that comes from the island of Junshandao in the lake Dongtinghu, produced as a classical needle-shaped yellow tea (Zhenxingcha). It has been yellowed by packing, unpacking, shuffling and re-packing it for 60 hours in a warm room. This decisive process is called Menhuang, which translates as stuffy/hot and humid yellowing. The original region for Junshan Yinzhen on the island of Junshandao is very small, which makes this tea very coveted and expensive. This is added to the very labour intensive process of Menhuang, of which the yellow tea results.
A universe in every sip. First shy, it slowly unfolds to its full power: smoky, slightly tart, sweet spicy and fruity, it reminds of a white blossoms. Its taste is full and savoury, overwhelming.
