No. 88, Huoshan Huang Ya


Smooth ~ Nutty ~ Umami ~ Creamy

This wonderfully delicate, non-pesticide tea is similar to green tea with a richer edge to its crisp, buttery brew. This profile is partly derived from the method of treating the leaves, which are lightly steamed three times and allowed to sit for several hours during the process. It is labor intensive, and well worth the effort. A wonderful tea!

This tea was grown without pesticides, fertilizers or pesticides.
