From Murchie's Tea & Coffee

Murchie’s Fragrant Bud Yellow Tea is bright tasting and aromatic! This partially oxidized yellow tea has a fine finish that demands further sipping.

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.

I don’t know much about yellow tea, so when I found this one in the box I had to try it.
Interesting – it’s not as subtle as white tea, it’s not as grassy as green tea, it’s not as floral/buttery/mineraly as oolong, it’s not black…. it’s definitely unique.
I’m not even sure what this is. It’s a light tea but without all the stuff I don’t normally like about green and green oolongs. Weird… a little fruity. Smooth, gentle, no bitter, no astringent.
I used half the sample that was in the box, and as much as I would like to play with this some more, I’m going to leave the last of it for someone else to experience. I think I like it, but it’s hard to wrap my head around it. I would try more yellow teas if they came my way.

This is the first yellow tea I have ever drank as it isn’t an easy type of tea to get a hold of without shelling out a bunch of money.

It’s an interesting-looking tea, the dry leaves are a mix of dark brown and grey rather than yellow like you’d expect and they’re formed into little twists resulting in a tea that’s quite loose and hard to measure in my little scoop. The flavour remind me of some white teas that I’ve tried with a distinct hay-like flavour. This tea doesn’t have the same sweetness that usually accompanies those white teas though. I gave it a resteep @2:45 but the results were a bit lackluster and weak.

It’s an interesting tea, though I’m not entirely sure if I actually like it or not – I need to fiddle with the parameters a bit before I can say for sure. Can anyone else share how they steep their yellow teas?

I generally go with a low temp like you did, 160 – 170 is my preference. I treat it much like I would a white tea. I steep it for 4 minutes.
