The rarity and preciousness of this special yellow tea from Zhejiang is fully expressed by the three characters that make up its name: 黄金芽 Huang Jin Ya, literally "golden buds".

In China, the color yellow is traditionally associated with the Emperor. In fact, only an emperor could have the privilege to admire the golden shimmer of this liquor, savor the delicate infusion, and enjoy its fresh aftertaste with subtle notes of cream and dried fruits.

The peculiar shape of Huang Jin Ya recalls to the mind the emerald needles of Anjibaicha green tea. In fact, this yellow tea is actually derived from Anjibaicha, which gives it a great concentration of amino acids, and thus a unique freshness. However, the tender buds of Huangjinya tea cultivar shine of a precious golden hue, warmer than the white candor of Anjibaicha buds.

Just like its green counterpart, this yellow tea is a perfect fit for a refreshing cold brew, but it can be also brewed in gongfucha, to better appreciate the subtle notes of each different brew.
