Yellow Tea -  “A Golden Treasure”

Yellow tea is a rare type of tea, treasured by those in the know, which is slowly gaining recognition outside China. Yellow tea, yellow in both leaf and the infusion, is produced through a unique and complex traditional method that imbues it with both the savoury notes and lightness of green tea and the mellow substance and maturity of dark tea. The processing is similar to green tea, minimising oxidation, which helps preserve the health benefits associated with green tea, but incorporates a step that can be translated as “sealing yellow”, in which the tea is wrapped in cloth and “smothered”, which rounds out some of the more astringent, vegetal notes that can be found in green tea.

The Tea Story

The Tea Story 

Slightly fermented, incorporating a clean aroma of green tea, the pleasure of white tea, the solidness of a dark tea and mellow taste of black tea into a full tea. Yellow Tea is rare among Western Countries, but it is starting to gain some recognition slowly.

The name of Yellow Tea is due to its yellow colour, in the leaves, as well as in the infusion. With an extra step in the production process, called “Sealed Yellowing”, helps to make Oriole Yellow sweeter, mellow and bright in yellow colour, without losing anything of grassy taste characteristic of green tea.
