Not Too Deep With Yellow Tea
To deep or not to deep is not a question. Learn about yellow tea with these simple facts.
Yellow is considered as the imperial color in China, so yellow tea was reserved as an imperial tribute tea for the Emperors of China and remains an increasingly rare and expensive variety of tea today.
Known by its laborious, time-consuming process of covering the tea in a moist and hot environment to lightly oxidize, yellow tea tastes very similar to green tea without the grassy element.
The lack of individual character makes yellow tea often classified in the same category with green tea or white tea.
The slim production and high price are turning this tea into an unpopular type, so it’s seldom being listed by vendors.
The truth is, for real flavor seekers, yellow tea breaks the norms of green tea and white tea, bringing a unique experience that can’t be missed.
We have been on the pursuit of yellow tea for a long time, but after numerous cups and close to a dozen samples, we still couldn’t source a yellow tea that matches our standard in terms of taste and value.
