YELLOW TEA: Yunnan Yellow, China

Yunnan Yellow - organic
Yellow tea, China

Yunnan Yellow is grown at an altitude of 1300m in an organic tea garden on the slopes of Ma Wei Mountain in Simao, Yunnan Province, China. Leaves from two different tea plant cultivars are harvested and blended together before processing to create this tea.  Certified organic by EcoCert SA.

We have two harvests in stock:

March 2022 - sweet and acidic with notes of flowers and cream and a hint of marmalade in the tail (first two images).

March 2023 - a more mellow and less complex infusion than the 2022 with notes of marmalade, hay, ginger and flowers (second two images).

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

Sizes: Yunnan Yellow comes in four sizes: a 3 gram single serve, then 20g, 50g and 100g pouches. Our leaves can all be steeped at least twice (often more), so while the 3g pouch is a single serve (150 mls - a standard tea cup size), it will give you two cups if you steep the leaves twice
