Yellow tea is produced by allowing damp tea leaves to dry naturally. It has a distinctive aroma, similar to Red Tea, but its flavor is closer to Green Tea and White Tea. Yellow tea is also used to describe the high-quality tea which is served to the emperor, as yellow is the traditional imperial color. Junshan Yinzhen is produced in China’s Hunan province and is the country’s most popular yellow tea.
Although an extremely rare tea, Yellow Tea’s health benefits are famous in tea circles. Although not nearly as studied as Green Tea Yellow Tea is more beneficial. Hopefully with the increase of interest, Yellow Tea will become more available in the future. Some of it’s benefits are still being debated, so please do some research if you want to use Yellow Tea for medicinal purposes. The reality is one cup of tea a day will not give you all and you can drink up to ten cups a day, but then you may want to consider taking a supplement instead (it would keep you out of the bathroom).
