Huangshan Maofeng is also known as Yellow Mountain Fur Peak in English, taking its name from the place of growing. The Yellow Mountain area is one of the famous tea growing regions for many well-known Chinese teas, including Keemun Black Tea, Taiping Houkui and Songluo.
Appreciate the subtle floral aroma and warm vegetal taste. Huangshan Maofeng is a very soft and light tea for the delicate palate. To enjoy it to the fullest, use only purified or low mineralized water to brew it. This tea should not pair with food with strong flavors.
Before you brew, take a minute to check out the appearance of this tea. The freshly-looking green leaves, with stout buds filled with silvery fur, is truly one of a kind.
