Meng Ding Huang Ya Yellow Tea

Meng Ding Huang Ya Yellow Tea


(rating: 4.7 out of 5)

Meng Ding Huang Ya Yellow Tea comes from the misty top of Mt. Meng, Sichuan province. Mt. Meng is one of the earliest tea cultivation areas, dating from 2000 years ago. Meng Ding Huang Ya Yellow Tea has been a legendary tribute tea. Strictly harvested and hand processed, Meng Ding Huang Ya Yellow Tea consists as much as 10,000 beautiful tiny down-covered shoots per 500 grams.

Other names:
Mt Meng Yellow Sprout

Taste:
Complex and delicate with hints of floral, sweet and nutty. Superbly smooth and full-bodied.

Appearance:
Tender and smooth green tea leaves.

Origin:
Meng Ding, Sichuan Province

Harvest Period:
Spring

Brewing Guide:
We recommend using glass-based or porcelain tea ware. Rinse tea cup and teapot with hot water. Use about 2.5 - 3 grams (approx 1/10 oz) of tea leaves (1-2.5 teaspoons) for every 225ml of water. Steep tea leaves in hot water at 80°c (176°F) to 90°c (196°F) for 1 minute for the first and second brewing. Gradually increase steeping time and temperature for subsequent brewing.

 

very sweet and floral tea, with a nutty hint, subtle and slightly grassier than jun shan yin zhen

A good yellow tea itself being rare, the Meng Ding Huang Ya with its slightly steamy and subtly sweet flavour is a pure pleasure. 90°C and 1 minute proves to be a good basis for discovering the assets of this tea.

A little disappointing. The grade of tea was not as good as I was hoping for. Good grade Meng Ding Huang Ya should have very firm compact buds, but these were a slightly loose and ragged. The caused the flavour to suffer too. Normally this should have a beautiful nutty / buttery flavour, but this was only just evident and struggled to come through. Still a very nice flavour, just not as good as I am used too
