It "improves" on green tea drying methods with an extra stage known as "Yellowing":
Heated green tea leaves are covered with cloth and left to gently steam dry. By covering they reabsorb the flavours released during drying. This is often repeated 2 or 3 times in order to maximise the flavour.
The name "yellow tea" comes from the bright yellow colour of the infusion made from these leaves.
Huang Ya is delightful and surprising from the first sip with a light fruity flavour with golden yellow liquor. It is lively, refreshing, slightly sweet with notes of plum.
