MT JUN YELLOW NEEDLE
JUN SHAN YIN ZHEN
organic yellow tea
China’s most renowned yellow tea, highly prized for a fruity, sweet aroma, soft sugarcane notes & powerful healthful properties.
This ultra-rare "elixir of immortality" is created from tea plants grown in an unique micro-climate found only on a tiny island which is 1 km long & .7 km wide, nestled in Dong Ting Lake. These exclusive bushes are harvested only once a year for about 10 days. After picking, a 3 day painstaking, complex processing method involves slow, controlled, slight oxidation & turns the leaves a light gold colour.

Our Special Reserve Tea Collection celebrates the art of tea craftsmanship, supports biodiversity, the environment and small scale tea farmers. These are teas are also extraordinarily rich in antioxidants and beneficial properties due to unique growing conditions, the wild and heritage tea varietals that are used, as well as traditional production methods. Requiring great skill to produce, many of the teas in this collection can take a Tea Maker over 10 years to learn and by purchasing these teas you’re helping keep these traditions and unique tea varietals alive and thriving.
SILK ROAD teas are made with premium quality, fresh, organic botanicals. Exceptional freshness, combined with organic growing practices, results in higher antioxidant levels & superior flavour. What’s just as important as the premium quality ingredients we select for our teas, are the ingredients we never use – no artificial flavours or colours – just pure, healthy, deliciousness in every sip!
