Yellow tea is one of the rarer tea types and it gets its name from its straw colored liquor. The production process is similar to green tea, but with a unique additional step called men huan, or “sealing yellow.” Early spring buds or tips are gently oxidized, before the final slow charcoal drying. This process pulls the aromas back into the buds and creates a more aromatic and mature tea, free of the “grassy” taste and astringency found in many green teas.
Yellow tea is classed in the same category with white tea because it is very lightly oxidized. One of the objects in making yellow tea is to remove the grassy smell of green tea while still maintaining the health qualities of green tea, and yellow tea is felt by some to be even healthier because it is easier on the stomach than green tea.
