Easily recognizable by its long slender leaves, this classic Chinese green tea comes from Huo Shan County (litt. “Huo Shan Yellow Buds”) in Anhui.

Well known for is refined visual and delicate aromas, it has been an imperial tribute since the Ming Dynasty.

Light in tannins, this fine tea expresses very little bitterness in the mouth. Notes of green peas and asparagus fill the silky liquor, stretching smoothly into a long, sweet finish.
