Here’s another sipdown from NofarS.
I haven’t drank very many yellow teas. The dry leaves are a mix of gray, beige, & brown, with an aroma that reminds me a bit of Sheng, only milder. I steeped about 3G in my glass test tube steeper @ 175F, & the leaves opened up beautifully, taking on colors of green, apricot, yellow & beige. The color of the brewed tea starts off yellow, but then warms to an apricot color. Maybe I’m imagining this, but the early steepings even had an apricot essence to it, along with a mild sheng-like taste. I’m getting several steeps out of these leaves, & it’s a pleasant brew. A little bitter on the tip of the tongue on steep 3 & 4, perhaps, but the later steepings have a shiny tongue tingling sensation & it has good energy to it, if you know what I mean. With that, I’m headed out to water the garden & pick some produce! Hopefully I won’t get lost out there ;)

Yellow tea?

Terri HarpLady

I think this is the 2nd yellow tea I’ve tried.
The first one tasted a lot like a white tea to me, only maybe a little sweeter.

I have one ill send you Terri. I love yellow teas, well at least the couple I’ve tried

I just spent the evening getting my tea into a spreadsheet so that i know what i have. Thinking about adding a column that says “sent to terri – yes/no” since i can’t track it all!

sipdown! this is a pretty tasty yellow tea. It’s not overly strong. I wish there was a bit more sweetness to it, but it’s not too bad. There’s a bit of fruitiness to this that is nice, though as the sup cools, that blends into the background of things.

YAY! 200! now to get a few more in to account for the verdant blends i’ll be getting in a couple weeks.

Sil

Yellow teas are a rarity in my cupboard, and in the shops that I normally buy tea in, so when I saw this in The Tea House, Covent Garden, London on my latest visit there, of course I had to snag a 50g packet. The leaves are whole, and huge, and need weighing, to know just how much to use. I brewed it at 70C, as I would a white tea, and the black, light green, yellow, brown leaves opened with a flourish. This tea tastes like a sweet, slightly smokey sheng, with fruit tinges (apricot, a little grape) that round off each sip. The yellow liquid of the tea matches the tea’s name, and makes for a nice evening cup. An interesting experience, which I will likely repeat.

i love yellow teas =0)

They are still a novelty for me, since they are so hard to come by. Have you tried Norbu’s Darjeeling Yellow tea?

TheTeaFairy

Hmmmm, I’ve only tried one yellow tea (from Tealux), and it’s now a staple in my cupboard…it is soooo sweet and full of different nuances.
I like your description of this one.
