WHAT IT IS This “Imperial Tribute” tea comes from the legendary Yellow Mountains of the Anhui region in China. Due to a special technique of covering the leaves before they are completely dry, the tea yields a special, bright yellow-green liquor. Yellow Mountain Green Tea can be steeped at higher temperatures than other green teas to allow for maximum flavor without the bitterness.

FLAVOR NOTES Characterized by its recognizable pale, straw-colored liquor, Yellow Mountain Green Tea has a fresh, peppery taste with soft floral notes, a hint of wheatgrass and a lingering sweetness.

BACKGROUND Yellow Mountain (Huo Shan Huang) green tea is highly regarded as one of the 14 most famous teas of the Tang Dynasty (618-906). The special technique of covering the leaves before they are completely dry yields a slightly yellowish color of the leaves and liquor they produce – which leads some tea experts to consider it to be in a category of its own, “Yellow Tea.”
