  • Delightful

    This tea was a real treat! Similar to green tea, but very fresh.

  • Recommended, too pricey for your first yellow

    Yellows are about my favorite outside of white teas. I can't pinpoint what this is supposed to taste like, but this is a mellow tea with low caffeine. I enjoyed brewing this, and I'm thinking of adding this to my evening teas. If you're new to yellow teas I think this is too expensive, however this isn't so pricey that the new crowd is priced out. If you must use this as your first yellow, you'll be pleased with the brews. I'm getting 4 brews each time. Enjoy!

  • My first yellow, recommended for those who like chinese greens

    think a light, blunted chinese green; good for one steep, recommnend 2-3 minutes to extract flavor. wasn't able to get much flavor on subsequent steepings.
