The features of our HSHY / the difference between HSHY and green teas:

HSHY is more mellow, soft, less astringent/agressive. It can be drunk at any time of one day, won`t cause any comfort. But because it is not yellowed on purpose , it is close to green tea, so still keep the refreshing spirit. So  HSHY has both the same feature of refreshing with green teas; and also the same feature of softness with white teas. Its chestnut & orchid fragrance likes Xi Hu Long Jing more or less..

How makes HSHY yellow during processing:

After plucking the fresh tea leaves, "tan fang" the fresh tea leaves/let them sit down for around 2 hours to let it wither; then kill the green, after this procedure, still tan fang for a period; then shape, after this procedure, still tan fang for a period; then bake 3 times within around 2 days, after the first and 2nd baking, tan fang! The tan fang let the tea ferment naturally! The longer time tan fang, and the heavier baking, the yellower
