Show Description

This rare Yellow tea is from the Huo Mountains (Huoshan) in the Anhui province of China. The name Huangya means Yellow Sprout. The process for creating yellow teas is similar to green teas with the difference being a slower drying period for yellow than green teas. The leaves are also covered with a damp cloth whilst still warm after dehydration, which triggers a slight oxidation through steaming, leaving the leaves with a yellowish tinge.

Extra Info:

Huo Shan Huang Ya (Yellow Sprout) is a rare Yellow Tea. This tea was used as an Imperial Tribute Tea in the Ming (1368 to 1644) and Qing (ruling China from 1644 to 1912) Dynasties. The processing method of this tea was said to be lost and was only re-discovered after the 1970s. Since then, Huo Shan Huang Ya has been sent to many great leaders of China every year as Tribute.
