This is the first time I’ve tried a yellow tea, and it’s funny, it’s exactly what I imagined it might be like—a cross between white and green tea. It has white tea’s mildness, its lightness, but there’s a slight grassiness (not in a bad way, and that’s a taste that usually puts me off.) I like it—a very refreshing tea somehow, although not I think destined to be a favorite.
Wild Kwan Yin
This gorgeous yellow tea from Anhui province, China undergoes an extended and very gentle withering process that results in a cup that is very smooth, light in color-but more body than many green teas, and very refreshing without the grassiness of some green teas.
