anybody ever try yellow tea? this is somewhere between green tea and oolong, in terms of the taste. it seems to be very hard to find info on compared to other types of tea. it's a bit more astringent than most green teas, and the leaves look like most high quality white tea varieties like bai mu dan or yin zhen.

yeah earl grey is a bit much for me as well....i've tried it several times and each time i just want to toss it down the drain :( however i have had an excellent creme brulee made from earl grey tea...that is to DIE for :) but anyways, yellow tea is much more subtle than ol' earl ;)

I've never even heard of it but I like tea and will have to research this because it sounds fairly good.

the only type i've heard of and tried is called huo shan huang ya, if you want to start searching with that name ;) it's fairly hard to find, like i said, but it's worth trying if you like green tea. (since the taste is similar)

I enjoy green tea. Never tried yellow tea before. I try to drink a cup of green tea everyday.

that`s great! i don`t drink tea every day, but when i do, i usually have an entire pot`s worth :) i have a huge variety to choose from, so i never get bored with the same types of tea ;) and if you like green tea, well, the same health benefits are present, and even more so in white, yellow and oolong (wulong) tea!
