霍山黄芽 - Huoshan Huangya Yellow Bud tea

One of the rarest type of tea, yellow tea is produced from carefully picked downy single bud and its adjacent diminutive leaves. Yellow tea is high in antioxidants, low in caffeine and extremely refreshing. The careful firing/baking procedures with charcoal fire bring supreme fragrance to Huoshan yellow bud tea.

As the name suggests, both the leaves and the infusion are yellow/green in colour. This colour is obtained by adding an extra step, called "Yellowing". The length of the yellowing process can vary from thirty minutes in some teas to six days in others, and 1-2 hours for our Huoshan Huangya. The yellowing process brings about some complex and subtle changes, softening the grassy and bitter taste that some green teas have, creating a mellow aromatic cup of yellow tea. So yellow tea is slightly fermented. The yellowing process of Huo Shan Huang Ya is the lightest, which makes it more close to green tea.

Actually people found the new type of tea (yellow tea) while processing green tea. If not drying enough or in time after heating and kneading fresh tea leaves, tea would become yellow.

Huoshan Huangya Yellow Bud Tea is a rare traditional tea and not yet know in the Western World. It is one of the 5 Olympic teas which were approved by the Chinese Government for the Olympics in 2008 and only now finding its way to the world. Tea from a beautiful traditional Village habitude in China. This tea is from the first and young sprouts (buds) of the teaplant and is loaded with the pureness of life giving power. Put 1 to 2 teaspoons of this tea into a glass of 85OC water and see how the buds open up their tiny leaves and sink in a stand up position to the bottom of the glass. Great tea on the enjoyable 'border' with the green teas.
