Yunnan Yellow 2019
All the right conditions came together to create this delicious and rare yellow tea. Grown in fertile soil, far away from cities, no pesticides or sprays are used in this tea garden. The tea plants grow up amongst all the native flora and fauna here and yield leaves that are loaded with flavor and nutrients.
The yellowing (aka sealing) of the leaves make a bright tea liquor that is less astringent than green teas, the flavor slightly floral, smooth and full-bodied. Brew this up with filtered water at temps of 160º to 175ºF and be prepared to be delighted.
We are very excited to offer this 2019 spring tea. This leaf will age nicely, deepening in flavor over the next 18 months to 3 years. Try some today, save some to age!
