Yellow tea is an exceptionally rare type of tea, unique to the Anhui, Sichuan and Hunan Provinces in China. It is made in extremely small quantities due to its long and difficult processing method. It is essentially a green tea that is slow baked at low temperatures for a very long time, to remove the verdant taste that green tea usually has.
Whittard's Yellow Sun is a smooth and nutty yellow tea from the Huangshan Mountain area of Anhui Province, China. Rare and special, it is a tea to drink when you have time to enjoy its every flavour.
