Huoshan Yellow Tea
The Huoshan yellow tea is known as the Huoshan Yellow Buds. When harvesting this tea, one bud with one or two leaves are picked. We have never seen a pure Huoshan bud tea on the tea market.
The focus during the harvest is completely on the bud and this bud has to be picked in combination with one or two leaves. This is the reason that this tea is called Huoshan Yellow Bud tea, despite the leaves in this tea. Compared to other types of tea, yellow tea is a relatively unknown tea. This Chinese yellow tea is also very rare. We have chosen this organic yellow tea from the Da Hua Ping mountains because of its tender taste. The Huoshan yellow tea is one of the last yellow teas available in China.
The only difference between processing yellow tea and green tea is the additional "Meng Huang" oxidation step which is applied to yellow tea (literally meaning “‘becoming yellow under the combined influence of water temperature"). This leads to a smooth taste. Therefore, unlike green tea, yellow tea is a slightly oxidized tea.
The combination of a good growing environment and the exclusivity of this yellow tea is a guarantee for a great tea experience. Give it a try.
