Description:
A good yellow tea for every day. Da Cha literally means big tea and is used for teas of simpler qualities made from big leaves, formed in a similar way to Meicha. This Sichuan Huangdacha comes from tea plants of an old local Sichuan sort, growing in gardens behind Mount Mengding. It was produced as a traditional yellow tea, the Menhuang (moist/stuffy yellowing) lasted for 96 hours.

Mengding is probably the oldest area where tea has been cultivated by man, i.e. not harvested from wild growing tea bushes.

Description:
This is one of the classic yellow teas. Superior quality made of one leaf and a bud, processed in needle-shape, however slightly rolled. Like other yellow teas, Huo Shan Huang Ya too is usually produced in a very green way, as it is the contemporary trend. It can thus hardly be differentiated from green teas. This one, however, has been produced in a classic way, really yellow, through the traditional Menhuang process: packed and piled up in portions over several days, it turned or sweat itself yellow. From time to time those packages of tea leaves are unpacked and then wrapped up again. Finally dried above charcoal.
Character:
Heavy, fruity-sweet yet familiar aromas complement the archaic and fullbodied character of this wunderful yellow tea.

Description:
This is a genuine Junshan Yinzhen (Silverneedle from Mount Jun) of top-quality that comes from the island of Junshandao in the lake Dongtinghu, produced as a classical needle-shaped yellow tea (Zhenxingcha). It has been yellowed by packing, unpacking, shuffling and re-packing it for 60 hours in a warm room. This decisive process is called Menhuang, which translates as stuffy/hot and humid yellowing. The original region for Junshan Yinzhen on the island of Junshandao is very small, which makes this tea very coveted and expensive. This is added to the very labour intensive process of Menhuang, of which the yellow tea results.
Character:
A universe in every sip. First shy, it slowly unfolds to its full power: smoky, slightly tart, sweet spicy and fruity, it reminds of a white blossoms. Its taste is full and savoury, overwhelming.

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.

Description:
A very good yellow tea for daily drinking, made in the way of straight Mao Feng. Huang Xiao Cha signifies little yellow tea and refers to the better quality of the later harvest, Huang Da Cha (Great yellow tea) being the lesser quality. The leaves used for this Huangyxiaocha come from the same tea garden as the Meng Ding Huang Ya and is produced in the classical fashion of yellow teas, i.e. through traditional Menhuang - humid/sticky yellowing. It has been portioned in special paper made from bamboo (stacked) and kept in a warm and humid room for 12 hours. Then the tea has been laid out for 24 hours in a layer of 10cm height, 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. After this, the tea has been shortly roasted over charcoal at 120°C and then dried in the oven at 80°C.
Character:
A sweet smell, slightly nutty and delicately smoky. It reminds of juicy vegetables and at the same time of buttery sweet caramel.
