Si Mao Huang Cha (yellow tea) BIO, from organic cultivation in Nanping, Yunnan, China. This tea is made from the tea variety from Yunnan, Da Ye (Sinensis). The dry coarsely curled shiny leaves have nice light buds. This yellow tea has a delicious floral honey-like taste, with a buttery aftertaste. The taste of yellow tea is caused by an extra processing, so it tastes less grassy and sweeter than green tea, you can classify yellow tea between green and white tea. Processing yellow tea takes more time. After the tea comes in, it is first withered before being heated to stop oxidation, which is also used in green tea processing. Yellow tea undergoes an extra step, braising, small batches of tea are wrapped in cloth and left alone to cool, this step is repeated several times so that all the aromas are absorbed by the tea each time.
