General information

Yellow tea comes exclusively from China and is a variation of white tea. Directly after the harvest and before processing, this tea is left to rest for a while, during which time a slight fermentation takes place.

Processing

Yellow teas can be light or partially fermented. In this process, fermentation is initially allowed, but is stopped again after a short time by heating or steaming.
Yellow tea, like green and white tea, is not suitable for long storage and should therefore be consumed within one year.

Yellow tea must not be prepared with too hot water!
