Junshan Yinzhen (君山銀針) : Top 10 tea in China, Yellow Tea
Junshan Yinzhen (君山銀針) or Silver Needle Yellow tea, holds a place of honour in the realm of the Chinese tea world. Very famous Yellow tea in China, it grows exclusively on Junshan island, located in Dongting Lake, northern Hunan province. It is famous for its rarity and unique processing. It was long valued as a “Tribute Tea” reserved for the Emperor or visiting dignitaries as far back as the Song dynasty (960-1279). In some cases it was presented in lieu of taxes. It was reported to be one of the favourite tea of Chairman Mao Zedong who grew up in Hunan province.
Tasting: 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.
