From Teavivre

Huang Da Cha Yellow Tea is one of the famous teas in Anhui Province. The plucking standard of this yellow tea is one bud with two or three leaves, characterized by brownish yellow leaves that mixed with leaf stalks. The production process of Huang Da Cha is strictly in accordance with the production process of yellow tea. But different from ordinary yellow tea, like Huo Shan Huang Ya, this Huang Da Cha has been heavily roasted, which give this tea a rich fried fragrance, in China, we call it “rice crust aroma”. This fragrance often reminds people of coffee, so the tea also been called “coffee of tea”.

sipdown from the other day. I had an amazing yellow tea a few years back and have been on the hunt for one that is similar since then. Needless to say this was not it. this one tasted more like a roasted oolong. it wasn’t bad, but wasn’t what i’d hoped for.

Ok so this is my first time trying yellow tea. I really don’t know what to expect. Going in pretty much blind.
Also had to guess on prep instructions. Went with 195F water at 3min western style.
Taste is… very vegetal. It is like a mouth full o’greens. However, the green flavor is rather pleasant. Getting a strong flavor of spinach and hay, with a very faint background sweetness. There’s a small amount of bitterness associated with that spinach and hay flavor but nothing too unpleasant. I’m finding the same grassy flavors that turned me off of grocery store greens are actually growing on me in loose leaf.

Bottom line is, this is a green tea that veers very sharply into green territory. While the soup is definitely golden in color, as opposed to yellow or amber of greens, the flavor is very close to that of a strong green. Give it a shot, if that is your sort of thing. You might actually like it.

Stole a tsp of this before shipping it on to a friend who ordered it – I consider it a middle-man fee – and had to give it a try.

It’s an interesting tea. It steeps up an almost oolong-gold and has a mellow flavor that sits somewhere between an un-roasted oolong and a mild black tea…it’s relaxing, in a way, and the low caffeine content means it’s something I can sip on for a while without worrying about getting jittery.

This tea is greenish amber in color and has a vegetal hay aroma. It has an interesting flavor of hay, veggies, and caramel. It is kind of like a mix of a green tea and a dark oolong, which is something I haven’t really tasted before. It is not something I would drink all the time, but I am glad I tried it.

Flavors: Caramel, Hay, Vegetal
