Junshan Yellow

This is one of China's most famous teas. Only tiny amounts are made on Junshan Island in northern Hunan Province. It is made of just the buds, which have been yellowed in a secret process. The liquor is more mellow than green teas, yet it is still slightly sweet. A delight to drink!
