The tea was designed and processed by Mr. Jiang, a very old tea master from Long Jing village in An Hui. As a frequent visitor to the famous Red Dragon restaurant in Shanghai, he was desperatly missing this tea after his meal. He agreed to design a traditional yellow tea for the Red Dragon which later became a best-seller.

Yellow tea can be classified into Huang Ya Cha, Huang Xiao Cha and Huang Da Cha according to the size of its fresh leaves. Huang Da Cha was firstly produced in the Long Qing period of the Ming Dynasty, which has a history of more than 400 years and is also a peak period of yellow tea production development. This tea is a strong evidence for the evolution of Yellow Tea from aristocratic tea to civilian tea. At that time, Huo Shan Huang Ya was very expensive for ordinary people to drink due to its extremely complicated production process. This is when Huang Da Cha came into play.
