Yellow tea is a famous tea from China. This tea was most commonly saved for Emperors and royal families, so these tea were processed in small batches due to the Chinese reverence for the yellow color of the dry leaves and liquor. Yellow tea is processed similarly to Green tea. However, the leaves of the fixed tea are wrapped in cloth or paper in order for the leaves to mellow through slight oxidation as the chlorophyll breaks down. Chinese Yellow tea is still rare today and should be seriously investigated before purchasing. Yellow teas have a flavor profile somewhere in between White and Green.
