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.

About Huang Ya Yellow Tips

Huang Ya Yellow Tips, also known as Huangya or Yellow Buds, is a type of yellow tea from China. Yellow tea is a category of tea that is less common than green or black tea and is known for its unique processing method. Huang Ya Yellow Tips is considered a high-quality yellow tea and is produced in limited quantities.

Huang Ya Yellow Tips originates from the Junshan Island in Hunan province, China. The tea is named after its yellowish buds and the island where it is traditionally produced.

The tea is characterized by the appearance of young tea buds covered in fine hairs, giving them a yellowish hue. The leaves may vary in size, and the tips are often chosen for their delicate and tender nature.

Huang Ya undergoes a unique processing method that includes steps similar to green tea but with an additional "yellowing" or "sealed yellowing" phase. After initial firing, the tea leaves are wrapped in cloth and allowed to yellow slowly. This process contributes to the tea's distinct flavour and appearance.

Huang Ya Yellow Tips is known for its delicate, sweet, and mellow flavour. The yellowing process reduces the grassy or vegetal notes often found in green teas, resulting in a smoother and more refined taste. It may have hints of chestnut, floral undertones, and a lingering sweetness.

The aroma of Huang Ya is typically fresh, with floral and sweet notes. The yellowing process contributes to a unique fragrance that sets it apart from green teas.

The brewed liquor of Huang Ya Yellow Tips is pale yellow or light amber, reflecting its name and the yellowing process during production.

Yellow tea, in general, contains moderate caffeine levels, falling between green tea and black tea. Huang Ya is no exception and provides a moderate caffeine boost.

Like other teas, Huang Ya Yellow Tips contains antioxidants and polyphenols that may offer various health benefits. The unique processing of yellow tea is believed by some to contribute to its potential health properties.

Huang Ya is produced in limited quantities, and its unique processing method requires careful craftsmanship. This rarity adds to its appeal among tea connoisseurs.
