Yunnan Yellow - organic
Yellow tea, China

Flavour: marmalade, dried papaya, hints of exotic wood & nut
Grown at an altitude of 1300m in an organic tea garden on the slopes of Ma Wei Mountain, leaves from two different tea plant cultivars are harvested and blended together before processing to create this tea.

The result is a beautifully complex tea that demands your full attention in preparation and tasting. Use short steeps (first 1 min, subsequent 30 sec) over multiple infusions to draw out the flavour and reduce astringency. It has a heady and exotic fruity and floral aroma, a thick mouthfeel with intense marmalade and papaya notes and hints of eucalyptus and walnut.

March 2021 harvest from Simao, Yunnan Province, China.

Certified organic by EcoCert SA

Preparation: Steep for 1 minute (then 30s for subsequent steeps) at 85 - 90°. Three + infusions.
