Huoshan Huangya Yellow Tea

Tea Soul

The Yellow Huoshan Huangya Tea is a tea of the highest quality, which in the past was served at the imperial court.
To prepare it at its best, the Gaiwan is recommended in order to savor its high quality, fragrance and delicious taste that will be revealed infusion after infusion. The most significant feature is its delicate chestnut flavor, combined with a sugary sweetness that lingers on the palate for a long time.

Tasting - Sight and Smell

The leaves of Huoshan Huangya yellow tea are thin, straight and tapered, with a color ranging from sage green to olive green and a good presence of buds. When steeped, the leaves give off very sweet aromas of white sugar and honey, delicate herbal hints and a more herbaceous note of fresh hay. In the cup, the liqueur is a soft yellow tending to pinkish, with a light, silky body and no bitterness or astringency.

Tasting notes


The first infusion of Huoshan Huangya yellow tea has a distinct sweetness that lingers in the back of the throat and delicate hints of fresh broad beans and peas. With the second infusion, soft hints of boiled chestnut emerge and the sweetness evolves into more vegetal notes of spinach and butter carrots. The third infusion brings further intensification of the chestnut note; fruity hints of pear and a hint of vanilla also appear, while the finish is fresh and slightly herbaceous.


At a first sip of Huoshan Huangya Yellow Tea, one can already taste its signature sweetness: boiled chestnut, pear, dried figs and white sugar emerge among the most distinctive scents. The middle notes are vegetal and very delicate, such as steamed carrots, peas and fresh bamboo shoots. There is even a note reminiscent of the soft sweetness of white bread, before an always sugary and slightly fruity closure with a long persistence.

Location of origin

Bai Ma Jiang Mountain, Da Bie Shan Mountains, Huo Shang County, Anhui, China.


Yellow tea (huang cha) is a rare variety of tea harvested in spring. It is produced in a similar way to green tea, but involves an additional step: after cooking, the leaves are piled on top of each other while still moist and warm and wrapped in cloth or paper sheets, an operation that promotes nonenzymatic oxidation (a kind of caramelization) and gives the leaves a slightly yellow coloration. This process causes the tea to develop a sweeter, less herbaceous taste than that found in green tea.
