Yellow Tea

Yellow tea: limited availability due to the high cost of production.

Yellow tea or ‘spring tea’ as it is known, is produced in Anhui, Sichuan and Hunan provinces. The leaf bud is picked when still green – so before white teas are harvested. After pan heating the tea is then covered and steamed which results in some oxidation. This additional, time-consuming process is called sealed yellowing. Consequently little is produced these days although propularity is growing once more. Yellow teas are smooth, mild and grassy with good flavour. The liquor is noticeably yellow. Use about 2 grams per 100 ml with freshly boiled water that has just come off the boil to around 95 C.

Kenya orthodox tea TGFOP1


Service rating : good choice and efficiently dispatched once ordered.
Product : All teas i have tried from this site have been of good quality, in fact the choice is somewhat overwhelming. However Kenya orthodox tea TGFOP1is my tea of choice.
I'm no expert but it seems to me this tea is what I regard as a traditional tasting tea similar to tea that I enjoyed over 50 years ago (but better). The reason I like it is it has a good strength and body but also with a certain delicacy and nice clean taste. A thoroughly enjoyable compromise.
