MT MOGAN YELLOW BUDS
MO GAN HUANG YA
organic yellow tea
Extremely rare, yellow tea is similar to green tea, but requires mastery of secret techniques that only a handful of the world’s best tea makers are capable of. Highly prized for potent healthful properties.
Heritage varietal tea bushes are shade-grown among misty bamboo forests on mountainous terrain. After careful picking, the leaves undergo light oxidation followed by painstaking wok frying & kneading which reduces bitterness & imbues the tea with a yellow hue that the tea is named after.

Our Special Reserve Tea Collection celebrates the art of tea craftsmanship, supports biodiversity, the environment and small scale tea farmers. These are teas are also extraordinarily rich in antioxidants and beneficial properties due to unique growing conditions, the wild and heritage tea varietals that are used, as well as traditional production methods. Requiring great skill to produce, many of the teas in this collection can take a Tea Maker over 10 years to learn and by purchasing these teas you’re helping keep these traditions and unique tea varietals alive and thriving.
SILK ROAD teas are made with premium quality, fresh, organic botanicals. Exceptional freshness, combined with organic growing practices, results in higher antioxidant levels & superior flavour. What’s just as important as the premium quality ingredients we select for our teas, are the ingredients we never use – no artificial flavours or colours – just pure, healthy, deliciousness in every sip!
