Junshan yinzhen (君山银针), meaning Junshan silver needles is a yellow tea that is sometimes classified as white tea or green tea. We classify it as a yellow tea because its production process is characteristic of yellow teas.

Junshan Yinzhen is made only out of tips/buds, which are allowed to yellow for an hour before being roasted.[1] It is grown on Junshan island in Dongting lake, the largest freshwater lake in China, located in Hunan province.

This tea is similar in many respects to bai hao yinzhen, a white tea also called "silver needle". Usually when a tea is called "silver needle" alone, the term refers to the white tea.
