: 58 The process for making yellow tea is similar to that of green but with an added step of encasing and steaming the tea. This allows the tea to oxidize at a slower rate, producing a far more mellow taste than is found in most green teas ; this also gives the leaves a slightly yellow colouring during the drying process.
