High floral top note with smooth, mellow body with a subtle buttery finish
We are proud to offer one of the rarest teas in the world; our limited edition yellow tea direct from China. The name ‘yellow’ tea refers not only to the unique processing and the lovely, bright golden infusion color, but due to its rarity it is also associated with the imperial yellow worn exclusively by emperors for centuries. Unlike any tea you have tasted before, at first sip it evokes the exquisite pleasure of everyday luxuries. Captivating high floral notes mingle with a smooth honeyed body and a subtle creamy, buttery finish. A perfectly balanced tea curated just for you.

    This is quality tea! This is very similar in profile to Teavana's raw puerh tea cake I recently purchased except even deeper in flavor. There's an almost honey sweetness about this tea that last many, many steepings!! Exceptional and delicious!

    Comments about Teavana Golden Dragon Yellow Tea:

    This yellow tea is literally the ONLY reason I still continue to come back to Teavana. I loved Teavana back before their affiliation with Starbucks and Oprah. Since then, I've seen quality of most of their products plummet, but prices have continued to skyrocket. I have a small, locally owned tea shop in my town that out-competes Teavana in every way (quality, customer service, and value), but they don't stock anything similar to this gorgeous, buttery-smooth, naturally sweet yellow tea. So I keep coming back to Teavana (more than an hour and a half drive each way). Invariably, I always also pick up a few cute tins or a new herbal tea flavor while I'm in the store, but I wouldn't bother if I weren't there to get this tea!

    I steep at 175F for about 2 minutes for the first cup (buttery, naturally sweet, and almost slightly floral; a bit like honeysuckle), and around 160F for about 3 minutes two more times for a second and third cup. Third cup seems to lose quite a bit of the robust buttery flavor, but is still naturally sweet, and seems more floral.

    I'm begging you not to discontinue this tea!

    Amazing taste

    By Leahbel

    from Las Vegas

    Comments about Teavana Golden Dragon Yellow Tea:

    This is what I expect in a tea.  The flavor reminds me of an English breakfast without the added bitterness. It is hearty yet light.  I am in love with this tea and wish I bought more befor it isn't offered anymore. Tea lover for 30 years

    This tea is so so

    Comments about Teavana Golden Dragon Yellow Tea:

    I thought this tea would be good and tasty just by looking at its color. After purchased it and tasted, I thought it tasted so so and not a cup of tea that I would find pleasure in every evening.

    Fantastic tea - definitely worth it!

    By Tea Lover Anna

    from Atlanta, GA

    Verified Reviewer

    Comments about Teavana Golden Dragon Yellow Tea:

    So, I only bought this tea because there was a super sale online. I was itching to try something new, and since the price was more affordable, I thought, "why not?"
    I'm always skeptical about trying new teas. I thought there would be NO way it'd live up to the high ratings and the praise left by other reviewers. Well, let me tell you:everyone else was right. This is an amazing tea!

    It's got this great smooth taste, which is not bitter in the slightest (I'm brewing it @ 175 for 2 minutes), and I really do notice the buttery finish. The best part for me is I don't need to add anything to this tea to make it delicious: it already is perfect with no sugar added. And I'm someone who LOVES to add sweetener to things! It's flavor is nice enough to where I just couldn't justify changing it by adding sugar or honey - and that's something you will never hear me say. Not to say that it'd taste bad if you added something extra - it's just that I couldn't make myself do it.

    I've found that I can re-steep the leaves three times easily without losing any flavor. I haven't tried to do a fourth brew yet, but I'm betting it'd still taste great.

    Also, I've found that I can drink this tea any time of the day. I drink it first thing in the morning when I get into the office, and I drink it again when I get home. What can I say? It's just a really great tea, and I'm sort of sad that it's a rare tea, and that it's a little more expensive than what I'd like to normally pay. But I am more than willing to shell out the extra money to get this tea when I run out, with or without a sale. It's so worth the price!

    Not sure what the fuss is about

    By Gushubaby

    from Philadelphia, PA

    Comments about Teavana Golden Dragon Yellow Tea:

    This tea is average and not worth the price. Seriously it it tastes like a lipton orange peko. Teavana has so many better teas. I particularly enjoy the monkey picked oolong, body and mind, and the gyoruko imperial. I would not purchase this again, very disapointed.
