Noted as one of the fourteen most-famous teas during the Tang Dynasty, Huo Shan Huang Ya is known to have been one of the teas made tribute to the Chinese court from the Tang Dynasty (AD 618–906) to the Qing Dynasty (1644–1911).

This tea from the high mountain Da Hua Ping Tea Garden in Anhui Province is plucked in early April and then manufactured in the style of a green tea except that the leaves are covered prior to complete drying in order to produce a slightly yellow tone leaf set.

This piling process is the most critical step in making Yellow tea. The piling can reduce the astringency of tea and improve its flowery flavor. The steeped tea has a  lingering flowery fragrance and pure smooth mellow aftertaste.

So glad I tried it!

I'm a huge fan of Elmwood Inn teas. This is my first time trying a yellow tea and it has been well worth it. It reminds me of a delicate oolong tea but with a very light earthy flavor. I am careful to brew it at the exact recommended temperature and steep it for the right amount of time. It is such a great tea to have when you want a diversion from your usual go-to teas. I infused it a second time for about 4-5 minutes and it was just as good! Branch out and give this one a try.
