Yellow Tea

Current processing methods of this tea are much more similar to that of modern green tea than to the ancient ancestor of today’s Huoshan Huangya. Today the best Huoshan Huangya (Mt HUO Yellow Tip) is made from the naturally yellowish leaves of the Dahuaping Jinjizhong cultivar. When steeped, the liquor rather resembles green oolong and is high in antioxidants.
