Production area: Huoshan, Anhui
Harvest time: Spring 2012
Huoshan Yellow Bud is a tea rich in history and heritage being designated as a tribute tea as early as the Tang Dynasty. It was given a new lease of life in the 1970s when local farmers and producers re-experimented and researched to resurrect this age old tea.
Once you tasted it, you will understand why it’s worth the trouble- after an initial slight bitter note, the sweetness rises up and shines. Coupled with the aroma of roasted chestnut, you find an entirely satisfying drink.
Like dark chocolate, it is slightly bitter initially but amazingly sweet thereafter.
Clear golden yellow liquor.
Gentle and sweet, Huoshan Yellow Buds is like the girl next door. She has an innocence and naivety about her that is pleasing to the most jaded of souls.
