Fragrant Bud Yellow Tea is a rare variety of tea which is slowly gaining recognition in Western countries. It is produced only in China, where it has long been a part of many well rooted traditions. As the name suggests, yellow tea has a yellow, golden appearance, both as unused tea leaves and as the finished, brewed tea.
Due to its processing, the yellow tea loses the vegetal, "grassy" aftertaste which is often associated with green tea. Many tea drinkers who don't like the taste of green tea often prefer the yellow teas, as taste is subtler and sweeter. The taste is very light and mild, and has no bitterness to it. The aroma is often described as fresh and flowery.
