The flowers of the yellow-flowered tea tree grow singly on the leaf axils. The flower is large (about 5-6cm in diameter) with a striking yellow color. Each flower has about 8-10 petals, 3 to 4 stigmas. The styles are only partially attached…. About the time of flowering, the yellow tea tree blooms from November to March of the following year. In the period from January to March, the tree has both flowers and many beautiful young leaves.

The reason for such an expensive value is that in Eastern medicine, yellow flower tea is considered one of the precious herbs good for health. Previously, the use of yellow flower tea was not widely known. Trees are often cut down for farming. But in recent years, many uses of yellow flower tea have been shared more widely, so consumers are especially interested and seeking.

Seeing this valuable tree, many people went to the forest to dig and plant it as an ornamental or take flowers to make tea. Currently, Ba Che district (Quang Ninh) is considered the capital of this yellow tea tree. Dried tea made from flowers of the Ba Che yellow-flowered tea tree is most popular because of its delicious taste and a large amount of active ingredients.
