A 2017 Garden Direct Series exclusive! This impressive collection features seasonal micro-lots of single-origin teas we source and import directly from artisan tea farmers. Available for a limited time, these handcrafted teas were selected through real time micro-lot tea cuppings during our 2017 origin travels.
This is a rare yellow tea known as Huo Shan Huang Ya ("Huo Shan Yellow Buds") from the Huo Shan mountain region in Anhui province. Picked in the Qingming period in springtime, these tea leaves are brilliant emerald in color with hints of golden yellow .
We selected this micro-lot for its refined structure, delicate flowery aroma, and smooth nutty-sweet finish reminiscent of very fresh walnuts.
