Imperial Yellow Tea
Imperial Yellow offers a balance in brew and flavor between green and black tea.
Ellen's Imperial Yellow carries a fresh, mellow, earthy flavor profile.
It is sourced from the Yunnan Province in China. The tea farms are located on the Wu Liang Mountain, an area that is part of a National Nature Reserve.
Yellow tea is prepared similarly to green tea, except that the tea leaves are left damp in order to slightly oxidize the tea, therefore turning the leaves and brew a beautiful golden yellow. This process is actually much more intricate than it sounds. The Chinese refer to it as "men huang" or "sealing yellow," where early spring tea buds are pan-fired and then wrapped in cloth and steamed repeatedly over the course of a few days. This gently oxidizes the leaves before undergoing a slow charcoal drying process to maintain the robust flavor.
