The Huo Shan Huo Ya tea body is yellowish green covered with white hair. The color of a liquor is bright orange, the leaves posses strong  flowery fragrance. The flavour is spicy sweet with fruity malty notes, it lingers in your mouth along with traces of sweet stone fruits, giving it a long, smooth finish. While it still has some vegetal flavours similar to green teas, the profile is very smooth and lacking in any grassy astringency of green tea. It has umami vegetal notes that are a little sweet and a little savoury at the same time with just a hint of roasted and nutty notes.

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.
