Yellow tea comes from the processed leaves of the plant Camellia sinensis. Its process of preparation is similar to that of green tea – with an additional step of encasing and steaming the beverage. This results in a smoother taste than other teas.
The primary aim of making yellow tea is to remove the grassy smell of green tea while preserving the health properties.The polyphenols in yellow tea fight oxidative stress and protect you from heart disease and cancer. Specific polyphenols can also promote improved blood sugar control and may help diabetes.
