Yellow Tea or Yellow Bud Tea is another variation of tea that is gaining popularity because of its unique flavor and characteristics.
To make yellow tea, tea crafters pick only the leave buds of the Camellia sinensis plant. The leaves are then processed in a similar fashion to green tea, but the leaves are kept damp until they yellow slightly. This slight oxidation removes the grassy flavor of green tea, yet retains most of green tea's health benefits.
Some people prefer the flavor of yellow tea because it is somewhere between green tea and black tea.
The bud leaves of Camelia sinensis are the highest in caffeine at 5% caffeine. So, 1000mg of yellow buds would contain 50mg of caffeine. However, processing also affects how much caffeine actually is released during brewing.
There haven't been extensive tests on yellow tea, but we estimate the caffeine content to be somewhere between green and black tea.
