Imperial Yellow Special Lot

Origin: Hunan Province


Yellow Teas are relatively rare in the west, which is a shame because they can be absolutely delicious. Their genius lies in a time-consuming process where green tea leaves are sealed in paper or cloth for a number of days — called sealed yellowing (闷黄); cell walls grow more porous and this reduces some of the grassy notes characteristic of many green teas. Yellow teas are made in a couple regions in China, and notably in Hunan where this tea was produced.

This tea brew is crystal clear, sweet and mellow with charming notes of apple — a bit like a Darjeeling, and just as truly fabulous. 

We imported this as a special lot, and are selling in numbered tins. Get some today, it's just divine.

Imperial Yellow Special Lot

Glad to See Yellow Tea!

It can be hard to find yellow tea, so I was happy to see this special lot. The long, delicately rolled leaves are beautiful and brew nicely.

it's nice

this is my first try at it. it didn't do anything for me, but it is a nice tea. however, my colleagues really liked this one. i'm sure it will disappear quickly.

Rare AND Organic

When brewed this tea has a wonderful golden color and smoothness - has never been bitter for me. If you have never tried yellow tea I'd recommended this.

I almost hate to review because it will disappear!

I really love this tea, so much so that I ordered more. It's very deep and mellow, perfect for early winter days.
