Leaf Type: Yellow
Where to Buy: Chi of Tea
This rare tea was imperial tribute tea in the Tang, Ming and Qing Dynasty. The processing method was said to be lost and only to be re-discovered after the 70s, since then, it has been sent as tribute tea to China National Departments every year.
The aroma of the dry leaf is gentle with a hint of sweet hay and the liquor has a soft, fresh sappy aroma of great charm, with a warm toasty edge and a delicate vegetal taste that lingers on the tongue. This is the best of the harvest, which produces a slightly more refined, lighter liquor, yet retaining the characteristics of a green tea.

I love yellow tea! And this may just be the BEST yellow tea I’ve yet to taste. It’s absolutely extraordinary!
It tastes and smells incredibly fresh. It is sweet and vegetative, smooth and mellow. When I inhale the aroma before taking a sip, it is like breathing in the clean air of a grassy meadow, with the fragrance of wildflowers dancing in the air. That is very much what it tastes like, too.
It is because of this type of experience that yellow tea is my favorite. I love the way it smells and tastes, and I love the way it makes me feel when I sip it. And somehow, these yellow buds from Chi of Tea taste even fresher than others that I’ve tried.
If you adore yellow tea as I do, I strongly recommend trying these Farm Fresh yellow buds. You’ll be glad you did.
