Yellow Mountain Hao Ya

Yellow Mountain Hao Ya

26.20 32.75

Grown on the picturesque hills of Yellow Mountain or Huang Shan, this classic tea hails from an ancient region of production in Anhui, China. The distinctive pointy shape of the emerald-green leaf and bud sets is achieved by careful rolling, which occurs after the hand-harvested leaves are pan-fired for shaqing (“killing the green”).

The pale liquor belies a full-bodied, string-bean flavor and fresh bamboo aroma. The vegetal taste holds up even through high-temperature steepings, without the bitterness often found in overbrewed green teas.
