Product Description

Spring Bud Yellow Tea is a rare variety of tea from the Simao region of Yunnan in southwestern China.


Yellow tea undergoes more complicated processing than white or green teas, only the best buds and leaves are selected to make this valuable tea. An added step of covering the leaves during processing, to conserve warmth and moisture, elicits a more complex flavor than would be found in standard Green tea processing. The beautiful full buds (fresh baby leaves) that you would also see in high end green teas or Yin Zhen white tea are found in this delicate yellow tea.


Yellow tea can easily take multiple infusions, so that the second steeping may also only last for a minute, the third should last a bit longer etc.
