Yellow Loose Leaf Tea

View larger Image

Steenbergs Yellow Tea is a rare tea that has complex taste and aroma. When brewed, Steenbergs Yellow Tea has a golden colour, a smooth, clean and slightly grassy and sweet flavour, and a medium body with light astringency. Steenbergs Yellow Tea has a taste that’s different from green or white tea, with the body of green tea but without its astringency – something for the real tea enthusiast to try.


To make yellow tea, the tea leaves go through a unique process - Steam Oxidation. After the tea leaves have been picked, withered and heated, they are laid out and covered with a damp cloth for a period of 4-10 hours. This causes a slight oxidation, giving the tea leaves a yellow tinge. The leaves are then dried at a high temperature for about 10-20 minutes.


Tea brewing: Put 1 teaspoon of Steenbergs Yellow Tea into a mug, or 1 teaspoon per person into a teapot.  Bring fresh water to boil & pour over Steenbergs Yellow Tea.  Steep for 3 minutes.  Do not add milk or sugar.  For more detail on brewing, try Ingredientia's guide on tea making.


Ingredient: yellow tea.
