Huo Shan Huang Ya processing follows a series of steps: Plucking, frying, primary and second baking, sorting, and piling. The tea leaves are withered, fried, and baked before undergoing a unique process called piling, where the color and taste are improved. Finally, the tea is given a final baking at a lower temperature.
