We are very happy to find this fantastic example of a delicious and authentic yellow tea that doesn’t pinch the pockets! This Huo Shan Yellow Sprouts was made using a traditional Mao Jian plucking of one bud, one or two leaves. This tea has all the character that we’d expect to find in a traditional yellow tea. Clear, herbaceous and fresh taste, smooth, waxy body and an infinity of nuances on the palate.
