Yellow buds from Huo Shan
Try this tea first
Product code: CSTV-19

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.
