• The Emperor’s Reserve

    • £7.00

      Yellow tea is so special that it used to be reserved for the Emperors of the Middle Kingdom. In contrast to green tea, yellow tea is not processed immediately after roasting but is wrapped in paper or cloth and left to cool. It is roasted and rewrapped again at intervals, ending with a final roasting.
      This yellow tea is from the region of Huang Shan (“Yellow Mountain”) in the Chinese province Anhui. It has large, wiry leaves.

      Available in pouches of 50g.

    The Emperor’s Reserve Yellow Tea

    This tea has a wonderful distinct flavour with natural sweetness and a hint of nuts and bread.
    This procedure produces a tea that is hardly oxidised and removes the “grassy” or vegetal notes of green tea.
