Yi Wu Chun Jian comes into this world on Mount Yi Wu in Yunnan Province, in exceptionally favorable natural conditions and is a great example of so called Chinese family teas (teas cultivated and produced within a single family). Raw material for this tea includes precious young flushes picked from tea trees very early in spring. Strict rules of picking and a very labor-intensive technology of processing put a natural limit on quantities of production; therefore, very highly regarded, Yi Wu Chun Jian is considered a real rarity in the tea world. The surface of the robust, rather large pointed leaves is generously covered with golden and dark-green hairs. The tea yields a clear deep yellow-green infusion with an aroma of a tropical forest after the rain, through which one can sense faint notes of fruit and wood. The tea’s refined slightly astringent taste is followed by a slightly sweet aftertaste.
