Mabian Huang Cha Bing (馬邊黃茶大餅, Mǎ Biān Huáng Chá Dà Bǐng, "Yellow Tea Cake from Mabian") is a unique yellow tea produced by Mabian tea master Heng Yi from his wild plants. Yellow teas are slightly more oxidized than green teas, but unlike oolongs, they do not undergo a roasting process. Yellow Teas have become more and more rare with the advent of industrial tea production, because the oxidation must be carefully controlled to produce the appropriate yellow hue and flavor. As this necessitates the attention of an experienced tea master, it limits the quantity that can be efficiently produced. Heng Yi crafted this single bing by special request as he has since shifted his focus away from yellow tea and unto other projects. This skillfully-crafted Huáng Chá has an impressive longevity with multiple resteeps and a drier taste than its green sister teas Mabian Maojian, Welcoming Spring, and Esmeralda, with hay and straw notes and a light cacao flavor on the exhale.
