Yellow tea is also said to be easier on the stomach than green tea.

Mellow

Definitely yellow when brewed. Mild grassy flavor. Tried a second steep, but tasted like hot water, although with more floral aroma. Worth a sampling

New favorite oolong!

I'd consider myself a pretty experienced tea drinker, but this one was new to me! Love how it's got more mouth feel than silver needle and a nuttier, muskier flavor. Restocked after trying a sample packet and it'll be a regular in my rotation. Thanks!
