Yellow tea is one of the six main classes of Chinese teas. It's production is similar to green teas, aside from an additional process called 'Wo Huang' (渥黄) - which involves a deliberate prolonging of a green tea sitting stage that turns the tea leaves a deeper yellow colour.
Yellow tea has a different taste from both the green tea or white teas. Yellow tea brew has a yellow tone, is fragrant, slightly sweet and has a refreshing taste.It is relatively unknown to even experienced tea drinkers and can sometimes be confused with old green tea.
