Description

Junshan Yinzhen is similar to the white tea Bai Hao Yinzhen in the plucking standard and downy white trichomes (small hairs). You'll find the flavor profile is similar but because of the 'men huang' (seal yellow) heaping step, the tea is subdued and smoother than Bai Hao Yinzhen. This tea has a flavor profile of lightly toasted bread, steamed vegetables, hints of fruit and vanilla.
