Yellow tea is one of the rare types of tea. If you find this tea cheap. Be wary. This tea is the only one to use sweltering during processing. And this is what makes yellow tea what it is (just like all the other types). This amazing tea is not to be taken lightly. With each note you will find, I am definitely finding, high vegetal and nutty notes. The dry leaves will be a mix of green olive and jade colors. Maybe not the most beautiful as compared with well-done Japanese green teas but they have their own. Rolled into a needle shape. The mouthfeel is smooth with very little astringency, even when you over-steep it a bit. There are some passion fruit notes similar to longjing #43 (this is a slightly different cultivar from longjing/dragonwell). With the second steep I am finding that the liquor blankets my mouth with an even silkier feeling. The first steep reveals the highest and more abundant notes whereas the second steeping is tapered and the vegetal notes are stronger. Asparagus and grass.

I’m a purist but I will try a flavored as long as it doesn’t have artificial flavors.

I will drink any type and love to taste whatever I can get my hands on.

(Purple is not a type of tea it is a cultivar known as TRFK 306/1)
