About Seasoned

Very few of the teas we source have Chinese names, so I like to come up with English names that capture the essence of the tea. This tea was originally called "Saffron", until my marketers told me that "Saffron tea" is a thing already.

I originally named the tea "Saffron" because it made me think about the differences between Yellow tea and other categories of tea. Everything about this tea is distinctly Yellow. You could not mistake it for a Green, Oolong, or Sheng Pu'er. Maybe this has to do with the craft, which is so specialized in this region that it looks nothing like the tea craft elsewhere.
