As promised here is my first experience with Yellow Tea for all to read.
The Tea I tasted was Huo Shan Huang Ya from DTH
Dry leaf does show a noticeable yellow ting to it. Looks like mostly buds with lots of down.
The liquor was somewhat lite in color. It almosts resembles a white tea. In fact a lot like a white tea. When I first took the first sip, it really tasted delicate. Yes, that is what I am going with, delicate. It had the faint taste of a nice Mao Feng and the sweetness and mellowness of a white tea. It didn't really have a body to it and was quite flimsy. However, I can see that it would be a pleasant tea for the summer since the flavors are not very thick and the lightness can quench the thirst.
The aroma was descent. It was some what floral but as with the liquor quite light and airy.
Very small buds, and I do believe that there still is a yellow ting which is nice.
Nice too look at.
Final Analysis - well, I did enjoy this tea, however I can see why some may not enjoy it. It does not really pack a punch and at times you really have to look for the flavors. It is nice and delicate and could be really nice in the event that you just want to drink something refreshing. One downfall is that most yellow teas are very expensive.
You try some!
