Yellow Tea
霍山黃芽

HUO SHAN HUANG YA

Huo Shan Huang Ya is a rare Yellow tea. The manufacturing process of Yellow tea is similar to Green Tea. The flavour however is augmented with an additional step translated as “sealing yellow”. The tea is quickly sun dried to stop any enzyme activity that may cause oxidation, and prior to firing, the tea is lightly steamed and blanketed with a cloth, allowing the tea to absorb its own essence.
