This rare yellow tea from China’s Anhui province is comprised of beautiful hand-crafted leaves and downy silver buds. This tea is notable for its rich, full and smooth tasting floral infusion.
When brewed our Yellow Sprouting produces a naturally sweet and refreshingly clean tasting cup of tea.
Brewing Tips: Huo Shan Chinese Yellow Sprouting tea should be made with cold, filtered water that has been brought to a rolling boil and then allowed to cool for a minute (170-180° F). Using one rounded teaspoon of loose tea or one teabag for each cup required, pour the water over the tea leaves. Yellow tea should be steeped for 1½-2 minutes. Once the ideal brewing time has been reached, the leaves should be removed to prevent further steeping.
How Much Tea Do I Need?

4 ounces of loose leaf tea will make approximately 40 cups of brewed tea
Definitely one of my favorite teas!
I have been drinking Cheericup for years and still love it for a morning cup, but having reached my 70's decided I should cut down on my caffeine intake. I couldn't allow that to mean no tea at all so I switched to Huo Shan Yellow Sprouting which has a lower caffeine content. I also figured a yellow tea would stain my teeth a little less than a black tea. The Huo Shan is definitely for people who enjoy their tea light, but it has just enough, delicate flavor for starting off the day. And being a yellow tea so requiring a shorter brewing time, I have and extra three minutes each morning.
This is an exquisite tea! As described on this site, it is "rich and smooth;" it is also gentle and sweet. There are no bitter or fermented notes in this tea.
In the wet leaves one can clearly see the full buds. These transport me right to the tea plantation. The aroma of the wet leaves is intoxicatingly inviting and I found myself salivating prior to my first sip.
The color of the brew is a gorgeous yellow and the taste is fresh and warm. I will reorder this one!

Frequently Asked Questions
How long does it take for my order to ship?
We strive to ship orders within 2-3 days of receipt. However, due to the handcrafted nature of our products, combined with inventory limitations, some orders may take longer to ship. If there is a significant delay in shipping your order, we will contact you directly with details.
Are your teas cultivated naturally? Are they Organic?
All our teas are sourced from tea estates, suppliers and importers that we have personally worked with for decades and many for generations! We only purchase teas that have been cultivated naturally, devoid of pesticides and growth agents.
Teas that have the term “Organic” in the products name have gone through additional certification by the country or origin and USFDA. Even though all our products are natural, we are unable to list them as Organic unless they have gone through these steps. Sometimes, this certification can be costly and time consuming for growers. Each country has different regulations, so many sell the teas to us without this extra labeling.
How long does tea stay fresh?
If sealed properly and stored away from extreme hot/cold temps and moisture, tea will stay as flavorful as the day you bought it, even after 18 months.
How long should I brew my tea?
Tea brewing times and water temperature can vary between tea varieties. Please consult this link to find the best method for your tea!
