WAO TEA

Shankara Huángchá

$28.00

Beautiful yellow leaves from Huoshan, Anhui province, China. Harvested from wild indigenous trees and transformed in a yellow tea following the traditions and the way of nature. Yellow tea is rare and used to be reserved for the emperor. It follows a similar process of transformation than green tea, but with the addition of an encasing and steaming process, allowing the leaves to oxidize slowly, offering a more mellow and delicate taste than green tea, but with a similar freshness.

Tasting experience : Refreshing breeze. Beautiful hazelnut aromas, complemented by a touch of vanilla, herbs and a sweet delicate finish. 

Element : Yin Wood. Fresh and awakening. Propelling the heat, activating life force, releasing stagnation. 

Brewing guide :
Ritual form : Gong fu cha with a Gawan 
100 ml water · 85 °C · 2 tsp tea 
Multiple Infusions: (1) 20 · (2) 15 sec · (3) 20 sec · +3 sec every additional infusions.
Quantity per bag : 50g
