Product Overview

Huangdan tea was originally produced in Luoyan, Anxi during the Xianfeng period of the Qing Dynasty (1850-1860). This product is suitable for making oolong tea, as well as black and green tea. Huangdan is a characteristic product of oolong tea style different from Tieguanyin. The production process is very sophisticated. Only when it is properly mastered can it give full play to its breed characteristics.

Due to the variety and production characteristics of tea trees, the unique quality of Huang Dan is formed. Oolong tea made from Huang Dan is mainly characterized by early germination, early harvesting and early sales. Huang Dan is generally harvested in mid-April, 10 days earlier than ordinary varieties, and nearly 20 days earlier than Tieguanyin. That is, the appearance is "yellow, uniform and fine".

From the darker color and savory aroma of the rolled leaves, one can immediately see that this is a traditional scent style oolong, well-oxidized before being roasted, but this tea actually retains a little of a green character. Its tightly rolled brown-green leaves have a soft woodsy aroma.

As they brew and open, the aroma becomes greener with a light floral note. A light astringency in the body transforms into a sumptuously oily, coating finish with delicate, persistent notes of acidic fruit, but reminiscent of the deep charcoal roasting this tea undergoes. Subsequent infusions are smoother, sweeter and more focused on slight of smoky, floral and fruity tones.

Brewing Guide: Prepare 3 grams of tea leaf per 100ml of water. For the first two steeps, 95°c water for no longer than 60 seconds will provide plenty of flavors.  From the third steep onward it is fine to add up to thirty additional seconds per steep.
