About Huangya

Yellow-green tea leaves
Huo Shan Yellow Buds
from Upton Tea
Huangya (黃牙), meaning yellow buds, is a type of yellow tea made out of exclusively or mostly buds, making it a tippy tea. Huangya is typically considered a rare tea, and tends to be pricey as it is produced only in small batches. However, this tea is grown in a number of different regions of China. The two most well-known types of this tea are Huoshan huangya (癨山黃牙) and Meng Ding huang ya (蒙頂黃芽).

Huo shan is sometimes written Hu Shan; this variety is grown near mount Huo in Anhui, China. This variety is somewhat similar to Huang Shan mao feng, a mao feng green tea grown in the same region. This tea is frequently described as having a light, peppery quality. Meng Ding huang ya is produced in the region near mount Meng in Sichuan province.

Some huangya is grown on Mo Gan Mountain, in Zhejiang Province, near Huzhou City. This tea is called Mogan huangya(莫干黃芽). Huangya is also produced in Hunan province.
