Description

This rare beauty is a truly unique treasure, a must try for any tea enthusiast! Don't be mistaken by the dark color of the leaves; this is yellow tea! True yellow tea; which is only grown in China, is prepared in a similar way to green tea, yet the leaves are left damp to slightly oxidize the tea, turning the leaves and the finished brew a golden yellow hue. Our "Huang Cha" yellow tea is wonderfully floral- you'll notice the chrysanthemum scent right when you open the bag, and almost a faint hint of jasmine. Its flavor profile is similar to an oolong, with a smooth, rich, buttery mouth feel.

Steep a cup of this fine luxury tea and imagine sitting amongst the Emperor during the Qing Dynasty!

This is how to do it:
1-1.5 TSP or 1 BAG
200ml
85°C
2 - 4 min

This tea really surprised me with its unique flavour and aroma. As other reviewers alluded to, it has qualities of greens and oolongs, but is something altogether its own. This is a new favourite and I really enjoy it. Also, this one has one of the best price/quality ratios I've found on Tealyra and I've worked my way through quite a few teas in their catalog. Highly recommend!

My first time drinking yellow tea. I'm an unroasted oolong lover (high mountain oolong especially). This tea can be seen as somewhere in between green tea and oolong tea. It has the same vegetal taste like green tea, but it tastes 'warmer', with more floral notes and almost a bit of milky- not in the way like milky oolong though. Some said that yellow tea tastes like corn soup, and I think that's accurate too. I absolutely enjoy this tea, and I'm looking forward to buying more yellow tea in the future.

This oolong has a great, full-bodied, almost slightly malty flavor. It does remind me (in a good way) of the nice, rich tea you might have at a Chinese restaurant.

Out of the 25 or so teas that I drink on a regular basis, this is one of the more unusual ones. I purchased it for afternoon tea sipping and for the low caffeine levels in this tea. It was a lovely color with a popcorn sort of taste, very smooth and creamy and had a few notes of tannins. Very nice for the afternoon.
