Yezi tea is one of the few companies that allow its customers to try their teas free of charge (other than shipping and handling). This option is unique and is a great opportunity for those new to tea that aren’t quite ready to the pay the price. Considering all of their tea is farm to cup and mostly organically grown, Yezi’s prices seem to be level headed.
Yi Fu Chun is an organic tea that was sourced from Huang Jian, Nanhu Mountain, Fujian, China. It resembles a Yunnan Gold, though the leaves are a bit more curled, the flakes of gold really stand out. I received a generous amount for a sample and this is one of those teas that I wish didn’t end. Rather than using short brewing times, a standard one tablespoon with boiling water was brewed for 2 minutes. The resulting aroma is very sweet; the taste is smooth with a medium body. There is a bit of a malty taste to this tea and a natural sweetness to it. A bit of fruit peeks through slightly, adding to the complexity of this sweet cup.
Honestly, I can’t stop drinking this one; I highly recommend Yezi’s Yi Fu Chun whether you’re new to tea or a huge Yunnan drinker. This Fujian cup has a lot to offer.
