Yang Xian Xue Ya has the natural quality of flower and fruit fragrance, its fragrance strong, its taste light, and its color bright. So it is labeled as "precious tea". The technique for collecting tea leaves is very complex. Only the tender tip of the leaf is used for the tea making process. This part of the leaf should be no longer than one inch long and shaped like the tip of a spear. The next step in the process is to repeatedly knead, rub and roll the leaves by hand. Yang Xian Xue Ya tea involves a particularly labor intensive process but the end result are leaves that are compact, tender and wonderfully fresh and aromatic. Yang Xian Xue Ya is a high-quality, man-made traditional tea which has a unique flavor.

The floss disperses & the pale green buds unfurl and begin to bob up and down the infused tea. The buds eventually swell displaying their pre-harvest form before falling upright to the bottom of the glass. A bright yellow-green infusion envelops the cup within minutes & the green tea is ready for sipping with the help of the odd blow to push away floating buds.
