The photos above show villagers are busy plucking spring tea at Dahuaping town, Huoshan county of Luan city, the main growing place for Huoshan Huangya tea, April 10. Though Huoshan was hit by severe snow havoc early this year, over 15000 acres of tea garden has been well protected by appropriate management. Currently, Huoshan Huangya tea is in harvest season.

Huoshan Huangya is a yellow tea from Anhui Province. It is the Imperial Tribute Tea and dates back to the Ming Dynasty. The dry tea leaves have a shiny appearance and are very similar to Huang Shan Mao Feng tea. The leaves reveal a very peppery and fresh taste accompanied by an unusual green-yellow color of the brew. As with all mostly bud teas the color and fragrance are slight.
