From Tealux

Yellow Tea is relatively unknown to most tea drinkers.

Huo Shan Huang Ya is a rare Yellow tea. This tea was already well-known as a famous tea in Tang dynasty. While the production skill of Huoshan yellow bud has ever been lost in the hundreds years before 1971.

Huo Shan Huang Ya is mainly produced in the Huoshan area of Anhui province. It is made from tender slim buds and processed by a traditional stir-fire procedure which is why it has the name ‘yellow bud tea’ (huang ya). The tea leave looks like the tongue of sparrow. The tea is fine and tender, covered by hairy tip. Because of a special processing step named yellowing the tea leave show yellow in color. The cup color of Huo Shan Huang Ya is olivine. It smells fresh and refreshing, somewhat with chestnut fragrance. The taste is mellow and thick. Very unique and refreshing.

This yellow tea is smooth, buttery and even though I let it steep especially long, there isn’t a hint of bitterness.

This was a delicious, satisfying yellow tea for all its affordability. Crisp, sweet, mellow but pungent! A fine yellow tea. I would insist on a temperature no higher than 170. 160 is probably safer for the first steep. This delicate yellow tea requires very low temperature and a short 5-10 second initial steep, using a generous portion of leaf (filling half of cup or gaiwan). Too hot water, or not enough leaf, and the infusion will lack the sweet, pungent flavor and take on more vegetal and astringent tastes.

Sip down on this tea today. It is a sad farewell. I’ve really enjoyed this tea but not looking to restock yet until my tea cabinet gets down a bit. I know it’s always an easy click away to get it from Tealux so I’m not worried.


I try to avoid going to Tealux, they have so many teas that I want :P I really enjoyed this one and think I have enough for a few sessions and that is it.


LOL I know what you mean. There are too many teas there that I always want to try.
