Where To Buy:
This smoky black loose-leaf tea is grown in the majestic Nanhu Mountain range on the outskirts of Fuqing City in the Fujian province of China. These mountains might be covered in dense fog for two hundred days a year, but one thing remains clear: for the last 250 years they have been home to some of the finest teas to come out of China.
Yi Fu Chun is an organic tea, and Yezi is proud to bring you this offering sourced, like most of our teas, directly from the farmer. You will find drinking this golden brown brew as smooth as riding in a Rolls-Royce on a newly paved highway. A light and natural sugarcane sweetness is a distinguishing characteristic of Yi Fu Chun. Notes of apple and peach add to its complex flavor.
By now you know I LOVE the taste of tea as well as LOOKING and SMELLING the tea leaves prior, during, and after infusion. But I am also a fan of tea for the history as well as the Farming aspect of tea. All of those elements are brought together in teas offer by Yezi. Specifically speaking…their Yi Fu Chun Black Tea – or as Yezi calls it – Red Tea.
This has a semi-mellow black tea strength to it with hints of natural sugar cane trying to hide underneath. I could also pick up on the peach flavors playing around towards the middle to the end of the sip on to the aftertaste. This tea is smooth and somewhat sweet but has a lot of character! Plus…it’s seems to work well for multiple infusions, too! A dandy cuppa!
