Tasting notes: Fresh, mellow with nutty notes and a delicate floral aftertaste
Huangshan Mao Feng tea is a green tea produced in the Anhui province of China. The translation is “Yellow Mountain Fur Peak” due to the small white hairs which cover the leaves and the shape of the processed leaves which resemble the peak of a mountain. The best teas are picked in the early Spring before China’s Qingming Festival. It is said by local tea farmers that the leaves resemble orchid buds. Based on the processing methods of the legendary Xie Zhengan, this green tea is beautiful to behold and has been treasured since the late 1800’s and hard to find.
