In the east of China at a height of 2347m above sea level lies the high mountain range of Huo Shan, which since time immemorial is one of the locations for the production of the best quality teas. For a very long time under the reign of the Ming and Qing dynasties Huo Shan Huang was an emperor’s tea. The tea is cultivated, harvested and processed by traditional procedures, which reportedly resulted in the fact that at the beginning of the 20th century only very few people knew how to process this tea, and with their departure the knowledge necessary for traditional processing was lost. Thankfully around 1970 documents were found which describe the entire process of cultivation, harvesting and processing of this exceptional yellow tea, which boasts several victories in competitions such as the Commercial Products of Good Quality (1991), China's Tea Cup (1999) and others. The infusion has a yellowish-green colour and the taste is very reminiscent of sweetcorn, pure and buttery smooth, and the sensitive palate will detect a pleasant fruity citrus taste. The aroma and taste may be very subjective.
