Huang Cha Yellow Tea

Huang Cha Yellow Tea

In stock: 15

Origin: China


This rare beauty is a truly unique treasure, a must try for any tea enthusiast! Don't be mistaken by the dark color of the leaves; this is yellow tea! True yellow tea; which is only grown in China, is prepared in a similar way to green tea, yet the leaves are left damp to slightly oxidize the tea, turning the leaves and the finished brew a golden yellow hue. Our "Huang Cha" yellow tea is wonderfully floral- you'll notice the chrysanthemum scent right when you open the bag, and almost a faint hint of jasmine. Its flavor profile is similar to an oolong, with a smooth, rich, buttery mouth feel.

Steep a cup of this fine luxury tea and imagine sitting amongst the Emperor during the Qing Dynasty!

Out of the 25 or so teas that I drink on a regular basis, this is one of the more unusual ones. I purchased it for afternoon tea sipping and for the low caffeine levels in this tea. It was a lovely color with a popcorn sort of taste, very smooth and creamy and had a few notes of tannins. Very nice for the afternoon.

It's a very, light tasting tea. Yes, it tastes mildly like an oolong, but it kind reminds me more of pekoe white tea. I prefer the other yellow tea, huo shan huang ya yellow. That has more of a buttery, nutty taste, no flowery flavors. So, what i did was blend em' together, even though only one is organic, which is fine. From what I'm reading about teas, it's VERY hard to produce great tasting organic teas. And i would have to agree, some organic teas i have tasted over the year, are either bitter, or lack flavor. I have to buy both, b/c organic teas are SOOooo limited & there's too many good teas out there to try, that at this point, I drink both. I LOVE TEAS too much just to limit them to organic.

I always keep at least 30 different tea in my cabinet, from green tea to oolong , black tea, flower tea and fruit tea etc. But this yellow tea is very unique, like the combination of white tea and oolong, with chestnut taste and flower smell.
