Jun Shan yellow tea is processed similarly to green tea, but after the first firing it undergoes steaming followed by a prolonged “resting” wrapped in cloth or paper. This stage called men huan may last a day or two before the final firing. The moist pause allows the leaves to breathe back their own aromas and prevents the astringency associated with some green teas. It also gives the leaves a very slight yellow cast. The initial firing halts most of the oxidation, but similar to white tea it is very slightly oxidized.As a result, it produces bright yellow color, refreshing flavor and sweet and mellow taste that are the characteristics of yellow tea.
