Huang Da Cha Yellow Tea is one of the famous teas in Anhui Province. The plucking standard of this yellow tea is one bud with two or three leaves, characterized by brownish yellow leaves that mixed with leaf stalks. The production process of Huang Da Cha is strictly in accordance with the production process of yellow tea. But different from ordinary yellow tea, like Huo Shan Huang Ya, this Huang Da Cha has been heavily roasted, which give this tea a rich fried fragrance, in China, we call it “rice crust aroma”. This fragrance often reminds people of coffee, so the tea also been called “coffee of tea”.

History

Yellow tea can be classified into Huang Ya Cha, Huang Xiao Cha and Huang Da Cha according to the size of its fresh leaves. Huang Da Cha was firstly produced in the Longqing period of the Ming Dynasty, which has a history of more than 400 years and is also a peak period of yellow tea production development. The appearance of Huang Da Cha is a strong evidence for the evolution of Yellow Tea from aristocratic tea to civilian tea. At that time, Huo Shan Huang Ya is very expensive for ordinary people to drink due to its extremely complicated production process; while the Huang Da Cha adopts a relatively simple production method and can be mass-produced which is more acceptable for ordinary people.
