Yellow tea the so-called tea of the five dynasties is part of the millenary drinks of ancient China.
The story goes that its cultivation and consumption were reserved only for Buddhist and Taoist monks.
Then it was offered to the members of the imperial family and later became part of the repertoire of infusions of the Asian country.
It is halfway between white and green and is obtained by a short fermentation process of polyphenols that is stopped with dry heat.
The fact that it is so little fermented makes its color and aroma soft and delicate. This yellowish tea is a good ally for our health.
