The traditional craft of Mellow Yellow can be traced centuries back to the ancestors of the Yi people, the wisdom of oxidising technique “悶黃” has been passed down through generations as a response to unpredictable weather conditions, high elevation (1500m) and challenging living environments.
Once savoured by the Qian Long Emperor 乾隆, its intensely floral aroma, soothing texture and mellow feeling make a truly unique tribute from the Guizhou region, different from any other yellow tea produced in China. If you are looking to uplift your mood, and regain a relaxed state and refreshing flow, this is the tea for you.

What's so special about this tea?
This is my favourite tea. The 茶气 (cha qi — 'tea energy') is calming and focusing. I use Slow Mellow Yellow to relax and watch the world flow. It's incredibly soft and fragrant.
Yellow teas can vary greatly regarding body sensation, and even nuance of flavor. While I knew generally what to expect, this yellow tea was beyond my expectations. It is rich in flavor, calming in body sensation, and yet also quietly energizing. In addition, I have found that this tea feels grounding within the body regardless of the season. Because of its adaptability, it has become one of my favorite and most cherished teas.
I never really had exposure to yellow teas until I tried slow mellow yellow. This tea is great in the spring/summer months or when you need some extra digestive support. The enzymes in this tea help to soothe the digestive tract. It taste amazing and like the name suggests really mellows you out.
