|Jun Shan Qing Zhen is the sister of Jun Shan Yin Zhen (a rare Yellow tea and one of China’s Famous Ten). Their appearance and characteristics are very similar and many unscrupulous merchants sell this tea as their more expensive counterpart. In its own, Jun Shan Qing Zhen is a wonderful green tea. Made up of silvery green unopened buds, this tea is just as beautiful and is produced mainly to meet the increasing demands for Green teas. Jun Shan Yin Zhen lovers should give this a try.|

Mount Jun Green Needle
Just like Jun Shan Yin Zhen, the fragrance has a smoky character that comes from charcoal firing. Yet, the taste is clean, mellow and refreshing with a hint of sweetness. Good for multiple infusions and we feel the taste is at its best in the third infusion.
Elegant silvery green tea buds. When steeped, the tea buds stand upright like a forest of stalagmites in the cup, creating a beautiful visual presentation.
