Kekecha Yellow is a superb fermented tea from Guangdong, China. Yellow teas are very rare and whilst initially similar to green teas, they undergo short fermentation periods called ‘Men Huan’ that result in a gentle spiciness, buttery roast dinner flavours and a top note of ripe mango, with less of the fresh grass that you would expect from a green tea. China has a long tradition of offering its finest teas to the Emperor. These teas became known as ‘tribute teas’ and Kekecha is one such tea. Very low in caffeine and excellent after a meal.
