Main flavor:

One of China's 10 Famous Teas, "Yellow Mountain Hair Tip" is grown on the slopes of the jagged and water-rich Huang Shan Mountains of Anhui Province. Produced from the Huangshan Da Yeh ("big leaf") cultivar, using a fine pluck "mao feng" standard for harvesting, this perfectly formed spring green made using the earliest of the spring buds then processed as a yellow tea. It is wonderfully fresh in appearance and flavor! 

Lot Notes. The source tea garden is in Keemun County, near Huangshan City. Lot is Grade 1. The farm is at an elevation of 500 meters. This lot was harvested in the second week of April 2024. The picking standard is one bud and one leaf or a "mao feng" pluck. The processing method is local using wicker basket for steaming. 

Tea Facts. The cultivar is Huang Shan Da Yeh Zhong. Teas grew on a farm practicing organic farming; however, the farm is not certified. The leaves were processed as yellow tea, extra moisture is retained in the leaf, allowing the leaves to further steam. Processing is in a wicker basket over wood charcoal fire. This method of processing serves to heighten the natural sweetness of the leaf and the clarity of its liquor. 

Tasting Notes. Infusion releases delicate yet very distinct aromas of sorrel and fresh vegetables. Notes are reminiscent of artichoke hearts and green beans. Very forgiving, yields its delicate flavors infusion after infusion.

Brewing Suggestions. Use water at a temperature of 175 to 195 F. One level teaspoon per each 6-8 ounces of water and steep for 1.5 to 2 minutes and taste. Yields multiple infusions of its naturally sweet flavors.
