For one month, Anhui Yellow leaves are hand dried over intense charcoal heat, piled and smothered repeatedly until water evaporates from even the stem and their flavor becomes most concentrated. Mild oxidation imbues this complex, true yellow tea with slightly fiery, chestnut tones, a baked asparagus sweetness, and as many antioxidants as a standard green tea. You needn’t worry about perishability or oversteeping like other green teas, as this demanding processing method creates a naturally long shelf life and a resilience against less-than-perfect steeping, making it perfect for home and office alike. This is one of the only remaining true Yellow teas in the world.
