Huangshan Mao Feng Tea is one of the most famous green tea produced in the south-eastern Anhui province of China.
Huangshan Mao Feng Tea’s English 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. Just like many premium green teas, the best teas are picked in the early spring before China’s Qingming Festival. When picking the tea, only the new tea buds and the leafs next to the bud are picked. It is said by local tea farmers that the leaves resemble orchid buds.
The making process of the tea includes a pan-frying step that drys the leafs and adds a toasty flavor to it. Huangshan Maofeng tea is sweet and has thick, velvety flavor, no hint of astringent with long-lasting sweet aftertaste.
