Kekecha Yellow Tea is a rare, extraordinary infusion of several noteworthy qualities. Similar to Oolong Tea, it undergoes only partial oxidation and fermentation, which requires an expert eye and near-unimaginable precision.
A wholly unique Tea in every sense of the term, it has long been a favourite of Buddhist monks. It was once also gifted to royal members of the Imperial Court of China. Now, you can enjoy it, too, here at The Kent and Sussex Tea and Coffee Company.
There is a multitude of ways in which Kekecha Yellow Tea stands out from the crowd. What it shares with other Types of Tea, however, is its amazing health benefits.
Indeed, according to the latest scientific research, beverages like this one can improve life in small yet significant ways. It can, among other qualities, improve the cardiovascular system, aid digestion, promote weight loss and reduce the risk of developing type-2 diabetes. Pretty neat for your morning cuppa, wouldn’t you agree?
What is Yellow Tea?
Many people have heard of the four primary types of Tea - Green, Black, White and Oolong. All come from the same Camellia sinensis (Tea) plant, with the difference between each one happening at the factory.
The processing of the leaf is ultimately what makes each type special, indeed unique. But where, exactly, does Yellow Tea come into the picture?
In many respects, Yellow Tea shares similarities with Oolong Tea, as well as to a lesser extent, Green Tea. It is a lightly fermented infusion that, unlike its counterparts, undergoes one additional step - a procedure called “sealed yellowing”.
This sees the leaves encased and steamed, which removes the characteristic grassy profile of Green Tea. In its place, Yellow Tea has a distinctly mellow taste. Intrigued? Try our Kekecha Yellow Tea today and find out for yourself!

Benefits of Yellow Tea
Did you know that habitual Tea drinking (at least three times a week) could support a longer, healthier life? This is according to a study published in the European Journal of Preventive Cardiology, which saw 100,902 participants split into two groups.
The first group was comprised of volunteers who drank three or more cups of Tea a week. The second group, meanwhile, included those who drank less than three brews a week.
Both sets of test subjects were followed-up for a median of 7.3 years, the results ultimately establishing that 50-year-old habitual Tea drinkers had a 20% lower risk of developing coronary heart disease.
Additionally, scientists noted that these same brew lovers could live up to 1.26 years longer than someone who never or seldom drank Tea.
