Limited No. 88, Huoshan Huang Ya


One of our two yellow teas, this wonderfully delicate tribute 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. 

Huoshan Huang Ya is a Bellocq Limited Tea. It has been purchased in a small quantity and is available only from our tea atelier and online.
