Introduction

 

Huang Jin Gui, also known as Yellow Gold Oolong, is a superior quality Oolong tea originating from China's Fujian province. Huang Jin stands for Yellow Gold in the Mandarin language while Gui refers to Osmanthus. The origin of the tea dates back to A.D.1860, and there are two versions to the story. As per one widely believed story, the tea plant was first discovered by a farmer who picked a few samples and cultivated them in his farm. The tea brewed from these leaves quickly became popular with farmers from the surrounding area due to its unique flavor, tantalizing aroma and rich golden color.

 

Another popular belief is that the plant grew out of few seeds given by a bride to her groom on their wedding day. Back in those days, the Chinese society followed a custom wherein brides were required to bring 'greens' to their husband's house. She cultivated the tea plant, which produced yellowish green curled tea leaves.

 

Appearance and taste

 

Huang Jin Gui leaves have a greenish-yellow tinge to them. They appear curled and may grow in variations like – a mix of one bud and one leaf or one bud with two leaves. The tea has a fruity flavor while it's aroma resembles that of the Osmanthus, smelling like a flowery honeysuckle. The brewed tea retains the golden color.
