HUO SHAN YELLOW TEA

Yellow tea is the rarest and least-known tea. It is little known because export outside China was once punishable by death! It remains rare due to the painstaking process required to create it

A variation of green tea, Yellow tea is created using only the bud from each tea plant. The bud is dried very slowly to remove the vegetal notes associated with green tea

Our Yellow tea hails from Anhui province. It is named Huo Shan, after the imposing mountain peak. Poor yellow tea looks darkened, withered and can taste bitter. This is fresh (you can still see the delicate white hairs on the bud), vibrant and of astonishing quality

Huo Shan Yellow Tea dates from the Ming Dynasty

From 75p per cup
