You've heard of black tea and green tea. Maybe even white tea, and red tea. But have you heard of yellow tea?
Yellow tea is rare, and made in China. Its processing is very labor intensive and according to my research, becoming a dying craft. Very little true yellow tea ever reaches the United States - only purchase from a reputable dealer.
The leaves of yellow tea are light green to light yellow appearance. The brewed tea has a warm, golden sheen. Its taste is much milder than green tea (no "grassy" taste) and its aroma is described as flowery, fresh and mild. Yellow tea performs exquisitely with multiple infusions.
Because of its beautiful appearance, it is best to drink yellow tea from a clear glass cup.Click here to read the specifics about making the unique: yellow tea.
