Lychee Gummy Yellow Tea 都勻黃茶

Lychee Gummy Yellow Tea (都勻黃茶, Dūyún Huáng Chá, "Duyun Yellow Tea") - One of our favorite new teas of 2020. Yellow teas have become increasingly rare in China due to the demanding hand-processing necessary to achieve the light oxidation that is their defining characteristic. This delicious and energizing yellow tea hails from Duyun, a region in Guizhou famed for its unspoiled beauty and pristine environment. Although Guizhou teas are not generally well-known outside Guizhou, the teas of Duyun are beginning to receive national recognition for their excellence. This soft, downy, early-spring yellow tea has the unmistakable aroma of the eponymous Lychee-flavored gummy candies from Asia. For those of you who haven't tried those, expect a bright, fruity flavor with notes of rose, white grape, and a bouquet of floral high notes. It yields a beautiful, soft yellow liquor with a smooth, buttery mouthfeel.
