Yellow teas resemble green teas, but are richer, warmer and less vegetal.


How yellow tea is made
Yellow tea is produced like green tea except that the leaves are wrapped in a special rough paper before final drying. These still-moist, piled-up leaves generate heat which yellows them and brings out their characteristic taste. The aroma loses its grassy aspect, gaining warmth and depth.

Yellowing is a sensitive process. The leaves are stirred often to maintain constant quality and prevent decay from excessive heating.
Yellow tea is rare and if processed according to tradition extremely hard to find.
