Certification:

Phytocontrol Certification

Huo Shan Huang Ya Tea, made through a unique process involving the special step of “heaping” to yellow the leaves, is a lightly fermented tea that is gentler on the stomach than green tea. It originates from the Dabieshan area.

The fresh tea is hand-picked before Guyu, the 6th period of the traditional Chinese solar calendar, which usually begins in April 19. Only the tips of the tea leaves are picked - it’s standard practice to pick one bud with one leaf, or one bud with two unopened leaves. Including more leaves makes the taste mellower and infuses the tea with a more prominent chestnut flavor. This strong chestnut flavor is the most significant characteristic of Huo Shan Huang Ya Tea. It’s highly recommended to use a Gaiwan to brew it in order to better enjoy the strong fragrance and delicious taste.
