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.

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
I've had a couple of samples of this tea. Excellent taste. Western method 1000ml for 5g sample will make 3 solid pots.
A yellow tea offered from Teavivre! I'm not sure why this specifically is a yellow tea, as it very much shares many elements of Teavivre's awesome green teas. The dry leaves are equally scented sweet and nutty. I suppose the leaves do look more yellow in color than most green teas, but the flavor is much the same: very mild and light, sweet, and nutty. Fresh, fragrant, and delicious. As usual, an exceptional cup of tea from Teavivre but I think some of their green teas are more to my tastes because of their stronger flavor. But if you're looking for light flavor, give this one a try. Steep #1 // half sample for a full mug// 32 minutes after boiling // 2 minute steep Steep #2 // 25 minutes after boiling // 3 minute steep Harvest: 2016
This is an exquisite sort of green teas. All the good tones of green teas are well balanced, the palette of flavours develops very softly and equally across the many steepings this tea can handle.
The leaves are beautiful. Needle-like appearance with nice amount of down. They've aroma of hay, honey, flowers, grass and chestnut. You've to be careful not to steep this over a minute, the tea is really delicate. Flavourwise it reminds me a lot of longjing, but with slightly deeper taste. Clean vegetal taste, with some honey, nuts and flowers. I like it, but it's slightly pricey as it's really similar to Superfine Longjing tea.
I haven't tried many yellow teas, but this one is undoubtedly among the best I've had. Some broken leaves, but they're beautifully downy. The flavor reminds me of a good Longjing, but crisper and fruitier. Brewing Western style for around 90 seconds works very well for my taste.
I received this as add on for upcoming teas. The smell and taste is similar to Dragon Well Green Tea (Long Jing). This tea is very smooth and a bit sweet. A very nice calm cup of morning tea.
Leaves be broken and flavours can be easily be overwhelming when seeped for longer than 1 minute. Similar to longjing taste; honey with a deep nutty flavour, slightly astringent but if brewed gongfu under 15 - 20s then should be a deep sharp sweetness. Clean vegetal taste. Definitely needs quality water to bring out the notes.
