Picture of Yellow Mudan

Yellow Mudan from Jasmine Pearl Tea Company

Style: Yellow Tea – Region: Hunan, China

83 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 4/5
May. 8th, 2015

The aroma is mild and sweet, with notes of dried cherry and peonies (aha, so that is where the name comes from!) with a very delicate note of nasturtium and raisins, vaguely reminding me of a Darjeeling.

Ok, I have to say it, HOLY MOLY FLOWERS! Hehe, the taste is super flowery, with a blend of peony and honeysuckle...

Hunan Gold from Adagio Teas

Style: Yellow Tea – Region: Hunan, China

83 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 4/5
Feb. 10th, 2015

First up, the aroma is like spring time, specifically it evokes my favorite flower (ok one of them, I really love flowers) peony! It also has the aroma of delicate orange blossoms, chestnuts, and just a hint of mown grass and honey. The notes are delicate, reminding me more of a breeze bringing in these aromas through ...

Darjeeling 2nd Flush 2014 Jungpana AV2 Yellow Tea from What-Cha

Style: Yellow Tea – Region: Darjeeling, India

97 / 100 Aroma: 9/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 5/5
Dec. 10th, 2014

This tea's aroma is pleasantly transportive, not that I can really figure out where it takes my mind, but I can say it is somewhere deep in my memories and very comforting, it makes me wistful. Emotional impact aside, the notes are peppery, distant blooming flowers, sweet muscadines, and a tiny touch of sweet, warm hay...

Huoshan Huang Ya Yellow Tea from What-Cha

Style: Huangya – Region: Anhui, China

90 / 100 Aroma: 9/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 4/5
Sep. 4th, 2014

The aroma of the dry leaves is quite sweet, there are notes of lightly roasted sweet corn, gently roasted sesame seeds, bamboo leaves, and a tiny hint of tomato leaves. At the finish of the sniff there is a hint of smoke. It is odd, every yellow tea I have had has had that tiny hint of smoke at the finish, I find that ...

Picture of Jun Shan Yin Zhen

Jun Shan Yin Zhen from Camellia Sinensis Tea House

Style: Junshan Yinzhen – Region: Hunan, China

70 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 4/5
Nov. 8th, 2013

I really wanted to like this tea. "Camellia Sinensis" has a very good reputation and I'm a huge fan of Jun Shan Yin Zhen. Unfortuantely, while this particular tea is GOOD and has a near-excellent value, it isn't GREAT. I steeped 2.5g at 190F for 3 minutes.This tea is known for being mild in flavour yet even with this s...

Picture of ZG52: Huo Shan Yellow Buds

ZG52: Huo Shan Yellow Buds from Upton Tea Imports

Style: Huangya – Region: Anhui, China

63 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 2/5 Value: 2/5
Mar. 23rd, 2010

This is the first yellow tea I've sampled and in many respects it resembles a green tea.

The aroma is fairly rich; there are some of the grassy tones that characterize many green teas, but these are weak and in the background. A bit peppery like Upton describes, and also a bit perfumey. Subtle, but with a lot of d...
