Jun Shan Yin Zhen 君山銀針
Honored as the king of Yellow teas and one of China's Ten Famous Tea, this rare and precious yellow tea was sent to Russian President Vladimir Putin as China's National Gift earlier this year (2006). The tea originates from Jun Shan Island (also known as the Island of Immortals) of Lake Dong Ting in Hunan Province. The yearly production of this tea is very limited, using only before and early Qing Ming harvest. Tea leaves picked after this period were processed into other teas such as Jun Shan Mao Jian and Jun Shan Lu Cha. Jun Shan Yin Zhen was an Imperial Tribute tea back in the ancient days, and is also well-known as Chairman's Mao favorite tea.
