Coming straight from a garden project perched at 1,200 meters above sea level in eastern Guizhou, in China, this tea harvested from young plants of the Fuding Da Bai cultivar was grown without chemicals.
Huo Shan Huang YaYellow buds from Huo Shan
Easily recognizable by its long slender leaves, this classic Chinese green tea comes from Huo Shan County (litt. “Huo Shan Yellow Buds”) in province of Anhui.
Well known for its refined visual and delicate aromas, it has been an imperial tribute since the Ming Dynasty (14th Century).
Its refreshing, zesty and slightly acidic liquor is light in tannins. This fine tea expresses very little bitterness in the mouth. Notes of green peas accompanied by heady floral fragrances fill the silky liquor, stretching smoothly into a long, sweet finish.
