From Amazing Green Tea

AAA grade.

Widely recognized as one of the top three yellow tea in China, the Mengding Huangya tea comes from the magical Meng Mountain of Sichuan province.

Mengding Huangya has a long and illustrious history. She has been a tribute tea since Tang dynasty (600 to 900 A.D.).

The name Huangya means yellow buds. It alludes to her leaf style, which for an early harvest like this AAA grade, consists of one bud with two leaves.

The tea buds are a pure pleasure to behold. Pour boiling water in glass and watch how they defy gravity and stay suspended mid-water.

If I don’t tell you she is a yellow tea, you won’t guess. The only clue she gives away is the tea liquor color, which is a beautiful yellow.

Medium rich in body and a pleasant vegetal in taste, she is easy to like. The aftertaste is long and lasting.

As I tasted the tea only in February, I was a bit suprised how well it had retained it’s aroma during the winter.

Taste was good, nice sharpness, maybe even slight something I’d describe as sour. It took a few tries to do it right, bad infusions resulted in strange unpleasantness. Goes also very well with different foods.
