About Meng Ding Huang Ya Tea
One of the most famous Si Chuan tea in the tea history, a beautiful yellow tea from the Meng Shan - Meng Ding Huang Ya. This tea is made with only tender buds, which is always considered as a precious tea. This particular Huang Ya is harvested from the high level of the mountain that has a less even and skinny appearance. The yellowish green leaves gives a fresh and raw nutty aroma to the nose with a slight vegetal hint. After absorbing the water, the tiny leaves distend into a plump needle shape that standing straightly at the bottom of the glass. Delightful. The liquor carries a bright yellow color that is smooth and light weighted. The taste is pure that combined with fresh nutty flavor and a lemony touch on the back.
Tips : When you brew Chinese yellow tea in a gaiwan, always leave a little bit of tea in the gaiwan between each infusion. This is call “the root” and will allow you to get the best of the yellow tea.

Meng Ding Huang Ya is a legendary tribute tea that was produced during the Tang Dynasty over 1300 years ago. This tea grows at very high altitudes on Mt. Meng Ding, “Hazy Peak” in Sichuan Province, China. Sichuan province is considered by some to be the cradle of tea culture with cultivation dating back over 2000 years. Huang Ya or “Yellow Bud” is a very rare tea seldom seen outside of China, with limited production. The harvest time for Meng Ding is early spring and requires ancient processing methods which are unique to this class of rare tea. The tender buds are quickly pan fired in small batches to halt oxidation. They are then wrapped in natural paper pouches and set aside to dry naturally. This process is repeated until the grassy character of the tea is removed and the proper level of oxidation has occurred. There may be variations of this process, but the overall goal aims to remove the natural vegetal character of the leaf. The resulting infusion is like no other and should not be missed. The pale yellow dew is a naturally sweet flavor and aroma similar to steamed chestnuts with a silky mouth feel and a clean mineral finish.
