High in antioxidants and low in caffeine. Yellow tea is a rare tea with a long history, made of carefully picked, downy single bud and its adjacent tiny leaves. As the name suggests, both the dry leaves and the infusion are yellow in color, which is aquired by an extra step in the processing where the leaves are gently baked over a charcoal fire. This step brings about complex and subtle changes, softening the grassy and bitter taste that some green teas have and creating a mellow, aromatic cup with a tiny bit of fermentation. This rare tea was an imperial tribute tea in the Tang, Ming, and Qing dynasties. It is produces from gardens high in the Da Hua Ping area, Huoshan County.
