HISTORY

Huoshan area has been a tea producing area since the Han Dynasty. In Yuan dynasty it's treated as a tribute tea to the imperial courts. It is one of the "Three Famous Yellows" from Anhui province (安徽三黄), which includes Huang Shan (黄山), Huang Ya (黄芽) and Huang Mei Xi (黄梅戏 - a traditional opera).

PROCESS 

Picking, the tea is picked early in the mornings when there's no rain. 

The tea is then laid flat to allow withering to reduce the moisture level of the tea. The tea is dried and allowed to ferment.

Subsequently, charcoal roasting is used to kill green and dry the tea.
