Collection: Yellow Tea

Collection: Yellow Tea

Yellow Tea (“Sweltered Tea”) is plucked from the early spring buds. The basic process is similar to that of green tea, but with an additional step of sweltering. The leaves are lightly steamed and then covered with a cloth. The warm air and moisture are physically trapped allowing the leaf to reabsorb its own aromas. The flavors of yellow tea are mellowed and softened as the process is repeated multiple times. Associated with the imperial yellow worn exclusively by emperors for centuries, yellow tea is rare, exquisite, and unique from the first sip.

Loose leaf tea is sold by the ounce. If you want more than one ounce, simply increase the number.
