Yi Fu Chun Black Tea from Yezi Tea


YiFuChunTea Type:
Black Tea (Red Tea)

Where To Buy:
Yezi Tea

Product Description:

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.

Tasters Review:

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!

Our mutual love for tea and writing about it inspired us to start this blog so that we could better share this love with others.

One thing I (Anne) learned very early on in my career as a tea artist is that everyone has different preferences, and every single tea tastes differently on every single palate.  So just because one of us doesn’t happen to like a tea, doesn’t mean that YOU (the reader) will not.

We try to be as impartial as we can.  We do have our favorites.  We are human.  But we do our very best to be as fair and as honest about a tea as we can be.

You might not agree with my assessment – or with Jennifer’s assessment – of a tea.  But that’s OK… if we all liked the same exact tea – we’d only need ONE kind of tea and … wow… that sounds really boring, indeed!

What a beautiful world it is that we have so many teas to suit so many tea enthusiasts!
