Yellow Bud (Huoshan Huang Ya)

Region: Anhui Province, Huoshan County, Da Bie Shan area

Other Names: Yellow Bud, Mount Huo Yellow Sprout or Ya Cha

During the Tang Dynasty when the tea of the time was mostly sold in bricks, tea farmers from the Huoshan area began producing an Imperial Tribute tea that was a tender tipped loose tea. 

According to Huoshan County records, this tea became prominent during the Qing Dynasty.  The highest quality and highest priced Yellow Bud was grown in the southern area of Huoshan County on two famous mountains; Wu Mi Jian and Gua Long Jian. 

Today Yellow Bud is a famous Chinese yellow tea and has won many recent awards.
