YELLOW TEAS

One of the rarest types of teas, Yellow teas are produced from carefully picked buds and leaves that are minimally processed. The leaves are stacked into piles where the internal heat generated from their decomposition, slowly stops the oxidation process. Virtually self-processed, the leaves also skip the pan-frying step. Yellow teas have more caffeine than green teas and yield light colored infusions and delicate taste and aromas.


Teas are available in bulk packaging or in "The Tea House" brand retail packages. Price is per lb.  Minimum quantity is 2 lbs. unless otherwise (*) indicated. Prices and availability are subject to change without notice. Custom blending available.
