From Harney & Sons

AKA Junshan Yinzhen, 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 once secret process. The liquor is more mellow than green teas, yet it is still slightly sweet. A delight to drink! Light and sweet with subtle fruit flavors.

After my best friend and I went to the spa today thanks to an anniversary gift from my husband, we had tea at my house. I wanted to give her something unique that she hadn’t tried before.

We made this in a glass pitcher that my son and his girlfriend gave me for Christmas. The leaves are so pretty to watch. After about two minutes I poured our two cups of tea and poured the rest into a fair cup so it wouldn’t oversteep.

Initially the tea tasted like creamed peas, mild and milky. As it cooled, flavors of mild rutabaga and a hint of spinach crept in.

If you add more leaf and more time, you can have a brisk tea with lots of spinach flavor, but I prefer the milder way.
