Description:
One of the classical yellow teas. Top quality, made from buds only, with very beautiful dark yellow black bamboo leaves similar to Zhu Ye Qing, processed as a Zhen Xing Cha (needle leaf tea). Like in most other regions, the yellow teas from Mengding Huang Ya are nowadays usually produced in a very green way, and can hardly be distinguished from green teas. This one, however, was produced in a very yellow way, following the traditional but modernized Menhuang: it was packed into portions and wrapped into special paper made of bamboo, piled up and stored for 24 hours in a warm and moist room where it could undergo the Men Huang, turning yellow in a stuffy/closed environment. Every two hours (even during night time!) it was unwrapped and packed again. Then the leaves have been laid out in a layer of 10cm height für 24 hours at a temperature of 25°C. This process is difficult to control (the tea can suffocate and perish) and very demanding for the tea master. Finally the tea has been roasted above charcoal at a temperature of 120°C and then dried in the oven at a temperature of 80°C.

Mengding is probably the oldest area where tea has been cultivated by man, i.e. not harvested from wild growing tea bushes.
Character:
Sweet smells, dark and warm. The taste is smokey, buttery and aromatic; slightly acidic and fruity. In a delicate way wild and full of energy.
