Huo Shan Huang Ya

  • Yellow Tea of the Year 2016

  • Great Taste 2014 One Star

  • Rank Courageous Goat

    Fresh and light. Although i did find it very close to what Anji Bai Cha tastes.

  • Rank Wind Summoning Fish

    Nice yellow tea. The aroma of this tea is reminiscant of grass that has been cut an hour or so previous, its light and refreshing with a complexity I didn't expect finishing with a juicy sweetness.

  • Rank Wind Summoning Fish

    By far the best yellow I've had which is many times hard to come by. LOVE this one

  • Rank Wind Summoning Fish

    Reminds me of a foggy morning in the country.

    This tea reminds me of fresh roasted chesnuts (the kind that you get on the street). Awesome to drink in winter.

Yellow tea was formerly an exclusive tea for the Chinese Emperor but the method to create this tea was lost for hundreds of years and rediscovered in the 1970’s. Since then it has been produced in specific areas of China (Hunan and Anhui) in small batches and is still thought of as a premium gift tea (usually to businessmen and politicians).

Making Yellow tea is a very skilled and handmade process. The leaves go through the same processing as a top drawer Green tea but then steamed and covered for them to ‘reabsorb their flavour’. This creates a light and soft brew with less grassiness than a Green tea and a sweet and smooth finish.

It really is not easy to find a good Yellow tea because it is produced in such tiny quantities and most of the premium leaves are sold in China (at silly prices). But this is an excellent Huang Ya Yellow and we have managed to negotiate a fair price for you teaheads.
