Imperial Yellow Special Lot

Origin: Hunan Province

$15.00

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.

Love this tea

This tea has the best flavor. Very delicious. I’ve never had yellow tea before. I look forward to drinking it every day. It came in the nicest container and very quick. I definitely will be buying other tea from them.

Something different ...

I've had green and black teas, but never yellow, until now. This was well worth the effort (OK, no effort, just lift the cup), as the tea was delicious. I plan to buy more when this one is gone (read: soon). Highly recommend.

Bright and Delicious

I drink this absolute gem of a tea any time of day. It is particularly refreshing iced on these hot summer days. PS: I love the handwritten notes sent with my order.
