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.

A fantastic medium body tea, with a bright flavor. More flavor than a white tea. This is a great tea all day. Pick some up, you will not be disappointed.
