Anhui Yellow

$39.75
| /

Yellow tea was more common in China many years ago, but due to its laborious processing, it lost popularity to more accessible green teas and has become quite rare. 

These leaves, harvested in Anhui Province in mid-spring, are wood-fired in a series of two woks at different temperatures, then gently rolled by hand while still hot. The final step is a slow drying—up to a few days—over charcoal heat, closely monitored to avoid burning. Unlike a green tea, it oxidizes slightly during this process, producing a distinctive, roasted yellow tea flavor. The pale liquor belies a complex yet delicate vegetal taste that lingers through many infusions.

Unique and delicate

I'd never heard of yellow tea until I took the IPOT summer tea class. I decided to order it after the class and I'm glad I did. Truly a unique tea. Delicate, light in weight but packed with flavor. Absolutely delicious!

Yellow teas are fantastic, but very hard to obtain, even in China. This tea is extraordinarily mellow and fragrant. I will buy more.
