“What of truth there is the yellow tea?” This is one of the most frequently asked questions that we usually do when we visit the markets theme that we go to and put at the disposal of the customers this variety of tea.

Yes, it is. Indeed, the yellow tea exists, and while it is true that it is not a very well-known in Europe and, therefore, neither its use, you may be surprised to learn, on the one hand, that is one of the infusions more ancient China – a country where it is grown 100% of the production of this variety of tea- and, on the other, this tea is so good and has so many properties that, according to the historical data of the world of tea, in the beginning only what is consumed by buddhist monks and taoists, an institution of the country.

With the passing of the years and knowing the benefits that this tea had to the health and the mind, the monks began to offer it to the members of the imperial family and that it took many years until it became popular, forming part of some of the teas most appreciated by the inhabitants of the asian country.

In this regard, I think that comes as ring to the finger to tell you a story: one of the princesses of the Tang Dynasty, the day of his wedding, asked for it to be the yellow tea which are serve in the same.

Now the question is: why this kind of tea prepared with the leaves of Camellia Sinensis has so much success in China? The answer lies, on the one hand, in its taste, and, on the other hand, the benefits of the same, without forgetting the striking that may prove some of its properties. I explain all below.

But, before going on to give you more details about the yellow tea let me tell you a first curiosity: to many lovers of tea who do not like the green tea, yes we greatly appreciate the yellow tea. The reason? The flavor is different, more soft and fragrant, and also have less caffeine, but the health properties are practically the same.

Properties of yellow tea

As I have already mentioned above, the yellow tea is part of the infusions tradicicionales of their country of origin, and China, however, is not one of the teas most consumed of the same, or increased production. And, then, 'why is it part of this list of teas traditional?', you may be asking right now. For the same reason as before explained that tea lovers who do not like the variety of green tea prefer the yellow for its benefits and taste.

But before moving on to talk about the benefits, I would like to talk to you about their properties. And is that one of the reasons why their production is so low, is because of the process of drafting that entails, which is much more expensive.

And is that despite being a tea very close to green tea or white tea, one of the first things that differentiates it from the same is that its short fermentation process, and its long proceso of drying. That is to say, the leaves are left to mature, instead of being fermented. Therefore, we are talking about a process that is much more time consuming, which is not income to the producers of green tea, which prefer to devote their efforts to the latter. Totally understandable.

What, then, is this process the explanation of the name it receives? Effectively. When the tea has a shorter fermentation and a long drying, gives rise to the appearance of theaflavins, also known as yellow gold. This is what gives color to the leaves with which we will be preparing our infusion of yellow tea, which, in turn, will also have that color between golden and straw-that both catches the attention of the people the first time they see it.

What about your taste? The truth is that has nothing to do with the other varieties of tea you've been able to problar. It is a mix between a sweet taste and sour, but that is very nice, because eventually you notice a sort of floral notes and peach that few teas can produce the natural way. The explanation of this particular flavor is in that to produce this variety of tea is not only used the leaves of the Camellia Sinensis, but it also includes part of the stem of the same. Something that is not used in any other type of tea known.

Yes, you will never find the taste of grass you may have the green tea. In this sense, it is like the white tea. Some people claim, even, that could have similarities in terms of the taste with the tea blue. We suggest you try it, if you haven't already done so, and tell us what is your verdict and if you prefer to other varieties of tea or not you mind putting it between those that are always present in the pantry of your home.

What about your scent? I love it because it is really fresh and clean! As if you'll end up washing the teeth. For this reason, those that consume it routinely, often do so cold, if it is true that to be able to feel all the aroma and flavor of the same, it is always better to take hot.

Types of yellow tea

If the yellow tea is little-known, are still less its varieties. There are, however, even though there are not as many as you can have green tea or black tea, for example. So, the varieties of yellow tea are more well known are:

  • Chün Shan Yin Chin: it is considered as the higher quality of the variants that are known of yellow tea. It was very popular during the reign of the Tang Dynasty. However, today it is quite difficult to find it in the usual manner in the places where it is sold. Do you want to know a curiosity? The tip of its leaves is facing upward when it is infusionan, a sign of a good signal for the chinese, hence they also like to consume for this reason.
  • Jun Shan Yin Zen: it is the most expensive of the variety, but his production is really low. Attention is called to the thickness of its leaves in the dry and in the form of a needle. It has notes of vegetables, fruit and provides a large amount of minerals to our body. It comes from the chinese province of Hunan.
  • Huang: originally from the province of Anhui, is the variety of yellow tea that most is produced in China. It is estimated that is cultivated for more than 400 years, and unlike other varieties of yellow tea, it has a process of fermentation a bit longer, so that its leaves are a little darker. It is the variety of yellow tea that you will find Aromas of Tea.

Benefits of yellow tea

And we come to the part that arouses most interest in the world of teas: the benefits that we bring to our health. In particular, in the case of yellow tea it is worth to mention the following:

  • It is rich in minerals: calcium, manganese, iron, or phosphorus, among others.
  • Helps to take care of your bones: thanks to its high content in calcium
  • Helps to take care of the oral health: the calcium it contains strengthens the health of our teeth. In addition, it prevents tooth decay and eliminates bacteria that can accumulate in our mouth.
  • It is very digestive: thanks to its short fermentation process enzymes that favor the intestinal transit increase, being the ideal partner for those who have slow digestion or when we eat in excess.
  • Ideal for helping you to lose weight: on the one hand, because this is a tea very diuretic – so - ideal also in order to avoid the retention of liquids- and, on the other, because accelerates the metabolism, helping to burn fat.
  • Cardiovascular health care: thanks to its high content of antioxidants – which, in turn, improves the appearance of our skin - reducing, in addition, the cantidada of bad cholesterol in the blood, making this last one is more fluid, and reducing, in the same way, the high blood pressure.
  • Improvement vision problems: as has become clear from scientific studies, which also assure that it improves the ability of concentration.

How to prepare and preserve the yellow tea

If you want to drink a cup of this variety of tea only you have to put heat in a saucepan the amount of water that you want to add to your tisanera and when the water reaches 75 degrees, fold and pour over the cup of tea in the infuser, you may have already placed the amount equivalent to a spoonful of coffee – although this is very relative and there are those who prefer two - leaving it to stand 3 to 5 minutes. One time after this time has elapsed you just remove the infuser and you're taking little by little.

In the event that you wish to take cold – as we have already said, there are many people who do - you can either add it to ice once it is tuned, but keep in mind that this aguará your tea, although it is the fastest way to achieve this or, on the contrary and, without a doubt,the best option, wait for it to cool and put it in the refrigerator for at least two hours.

So if you go for this last option, it is best to prepare in the morning and so you have it ready for noon or for you when you come, for example, take a dip in the beach or in the pool or after playing some sport. In summer and chilly, it is one of the best options, healthy and natural, that you can consume!

When you take the yellow tea

Of course, like the rest of teas, the yellow can be taken at any time of the year, although, due to its properties, it is especially good for exam time, a time of colds or heavy meals, as you can be the christmas season.

In regard to the time of the day, it is recommended, especially, towards noon, after a meal or as a snack. Although it does not contain a lot of caffeine, it is not recommended to take it very close to the time you go to bed.
