Ancient Yellow Buds, Organic Fair Trade Yellow Tea

This tea has such a wonderfully unique profile with a rich, sweet and savory flavor accented by notes of peeled apples and honeysuckle. Yellow Buds resembles white tea silver needle and is composed of a single, ripe bud shoot. It was harvested during the 2nd week of April in Mannong Manmai and handcrafted with artisan methods inspired by Hunan’s famous Jun Shan Yin Zhen yellow piling process. Usually, yellow teas are made with small leaf or medium leaf varietals from central and eastern China. This is a one of a kind Yellow Tea made with Mannong Manmai’s ancient heirloom broad leaf tea trees. This is our first year to make this tea and we chose to release it for Fair Trade month as an example of the unqiue, new style teas we can produce in the traditional Pu-erh areas of Yunnan. It is very limited and we’ll do our best to make more of it next spring.

Use a porcelain guywan, glass teapot or a Ho-hin and fill it half full. Use 180˚F water and infuse the 1st infusion for 2 minutes, 2nd infusion for 3 minutes, 3 rd infusion for 4-5 minutes and all subsequent infusions for 5-7 minutes.

Ingredients: Organic Fair Trade Certified™ yellow tea.
Origin: Yunnan, China.

I really liked this tea.I got it in a trade with Ellyn. It is very subtlely flavoured… i made it right before i went to do laundry so i accidentally oversteeped.. but it was excellent it made the flavour even more prominent!
