Brief Introduction to
Chinese Yellow Tea

Yellow tea was invented by the Chinese in the Ming dynasty, no one knows exactly when it started but records show that it started in the Ming dynasty (1368-1644).

Yellow tea usually implies a special tea processed similarly to green tea, but with a slower drying phase, where the damp tea leaves are allowed to sit and yellow. The tea generally has a very yellow-green appearance and a smell different from both white tea and green tea. The big difference of yellow tea is that it is lightly oxidized tea, and it is very time-consuming and difficult, giving it a mellower, sweeter and riper flavor than green tea, as well as a refreshing cool feeling that lingers in the throat. During the process a lot of digestive enzymes are created, which makes it gentler on the stomach than green tea, lots of natural fresh tea leaves nutrition is kept within the yellow tea. Many regions use to produce yellow tea but since it is so complicated to make, the skill has been lost in many regions. For the thousand kinds of green tea, there are only 3-4 kinds of yellow tea that still survive today.

Yellow tea is very rare. In the beginning it use to be a tribute tea for the Qing Dynasty, manchu people use it, drink it with milk and salt. they use this for their daily service milk tea.
