Processing of Yellow Tea is a little different than Green Tea. Since stir fixation Green Tea period, people have found that the leaves will become slight yellow if they are not dried on time or completely dried after fixation, thus produced a new kind of tea – Yellow Tea.
The main processing: fixation (kill-green) - heaping for yellowing – drying.
Heaping for yellowing is unique process to produce yellow tea, yellow liquor and yellow leaves, and it is also the key step to make Yellow Tea to be different from Green Tea. After fixation or rolling, the warm tea leaves are heaped up, which causes the tea leaves to turn yellow under hyther.

* Required Fields
This was my first time trying a yellow tea. It had a sweet, starchy flavor, reminiscent of sweet peas or sweet corn. The color of the liquid was a light yellow-green color. The scent was pleasant and the scent of the leaves and the tea were very similar. There was no astringency in the first cup, but it gradually increased over the course of a few cups. Still, it was less than some green teas are on their first cup. There was no bitterness at all. The flavor was sooth and well-rounded. It felt like it had a very good quality feel to it. It was an interesting experience to try this out. The reason that I wouldn't make this a regular tea for me is twofold. First, sweet and starchy flavors aren't really my taste. I don't even tend to like sweet and starchy flavors in foods and very rarely eat sweet peas or sweet corn (which are the flavors I detected in this tea). Secondly, I have a muscle/joint condition which was irritated by drinking this tea. This is not some strange thing and I do not blame the tea. This happens every now and then with certain foods and drinks (e.g. pineapple, red wine). So, it's not strange for this to happen. But, for those who have similar issues as I do, just keep this in mind. Perhaps consider ordering a sample first just to make sure that you don't have the same issues as I did. Overall, I'm happy for the experience. It was nice to learn what yellow tea tastes like. It also gives me a basis for comparison when tasting other varieties of tea.
Первый желтый чай, который довелось пробовать. Интересный напиток с приятным сладковатым ароматом. И листьями непривычной формы. Иногда можно себя побаловать, но на каждый день вряд ли. The first yellow tea that I had to try. An interesting drink with a pleasant sweetish aroma. And leaves of unusual shape. Sometimes you can pamper yourself, but it's not suit for every day.
This is the first yellow tea I have ever tried and it does not disappoint! A smooth, mellow taste. I will be purchasing this lovely tea!
This is the best yellow tea I've ever had. I loved it! It is fresh, sweet, and clean with notes of hay, warm chestnuts, and a little bit of green peas... that is... sweet, vegetal, and super delicious. I thought it was similar to my all-time fave - Dragonwell. Loved it!
Thank you, Teavivre, for this sample! I don’t think I ever tried a yellow tea before. I anticipated that it would have characteristics similar to green tea since it was on the lighter side of the color spectrum. When I opened the silver sample package, long green tea leaves greeted me from inside. The aroma of the unbrewed leaves was grassy and, yes, similar to the grassy smell of green tea. I brewed the leaves at approximately 185 degrees (I had to estimate using the office microwave machine to heat the water) for eight minutes as recommended on the package. The steeped color was light yellow. The odor was again definitely like that of green tea. The flavor of this tea was surprisingly full-bodied, distinct, and satisfying. Yes, the taste was similar to green tea, but this yellow tea had its own flavor signature as well. The taste was a bit grassy like green varieties but there was also a blended sweet potato attribute that lay comfortably on my palate. As is common with Teavivre teas, it was extremely smooth without a glimmer of astringency. The aftertaste was light and airy and it quickly dissipated. I didn’t expect to like yellow tea too much since I almost exclusively favor the robust, high octane, black teas. However, I REALLY enjoyed this one…A LOT! I don’t have a long list of preferred afternoon and evening teas yet but this offering is definitely high up on it!
I love that this tea is less irritating to the stomach! I have a very sensitive tummy and this didn't cause any problems at all. I made it Western style and have had two steeps of it so far. The dry leaves smell amazing! The liquor is pale, clear yellow and the scent is milder than the dry leaves. The tea tastes sweet and creamy, no bitterness or sourness at all.
My first try at a yellow tea ever. Being a fan of green tea, to no surprise this one did not dissapoint and was much to my taste also. Top-notch quality as always from teavivre.
I tasted a Huo shan huang ya yellow tea before, from another seller, and I was quite impressed with it. The TeaVivre version (harvested April 12, 2016) does not dissapoint! Gorgeous! Chestnut fragrance and sweet buttered corn taste (like a very creamy tasty 2 colors corn-cob). I almost forgot how much I like this tea. I will definitely buy it every year.
Once again a tea that I was very excited to try. I guess that is what happens when you choose what samples to buy! One of my first prolonged experiences with yellow tea, and I was not disappointed. Very much worth the cost, which is definitely not within the everyday drinking price range. The dry leaf was full of long, whole pieces that were a medium green in color. The aroma of these leaves was sweet and floral, very much like a silver needle. The aroma was quite strong and full. After the initial steeping, the leaves let go more of this wonderful aroma. The liquor was a beautiful deep golden yellow. A dark gold that I have never seen before in tea. The aroma of this liquor was light and hard to decipher, albeit very pleasant. The taste of the liquor was stunning. Floral, sweet, with zero astringency. Stronger than a silver needle, but lighter, fresher, and sweeter than green tea with a slight honey aftertaste. Overall I would place this tea in the same category as silver needle (albeit a much different tea). It is delicate, exquisite, yet expensive. A tea to be enjoyed for special occasions when you desire something special.
Got the tasting sample Notes of hay and honey in the nose Lightly astringent with sweet aftertaste of almond and honey Rather short after taste On the lighter side of taste Good for 4 steeps Price is reasonable
