Description: Jun Shan Huang Cha tea is a yellow tea from Junshan Island of the Hunan Province in China. It is one of Chinese Famous Teas. Junshan yellow tea is only produce using the tea leaves from the tea garden at the Junshan Island, which is located in the middle of Dong Ting Lake of Hunan Province. Dong Ting Lake, which is the 2nd largest lake in China, helps release floods from the Yangzi River. Jun Shan is a small island within this lake, measuring about 1 kilometer long and 0.7 kilometers wide.
To process Yellow Tea, the tea leaf must undergo the unique step called Men Huang which is the slow oxidation process of tea polyphenols such as catechin. Jun Shan yellow tea is processed similarly to green tea, but after the first firing it undergoes steaming followed by a prolonged “resting” wrapped in cloth or paper. This stage may last a day or two before the final firing. The moist pause allows the leaves to breathe back their own aromas and prevents the astringency associated with some green teas. It also gives the leaves a very slight yellow cast. The initial firing halts most of the oxidation, but similar to white tea it is very slightly oxidized. As a result, it produces bright yellow color, refreshing flavor and sweet and mellow taste that are the characteristics of yellow tea.
