Huang Shan Mao Feng is one of the top ten most prized teas of China, so when we ran into this small batch of exceptional tea we just couldn’t stop ourselves from buying the entire lot. This batch of Huang Shan Mao Feng exhibits an interesting gentle wisp of hickory-like smokiness. The tea is forgiving enough that it can be infused in very hot water without excessive bitterness, yet rich and flavorful enough to stand up to the hardy and spicy foods that the people of Huang Shan enjoy very much. This is a green tea that you can enjoy on any occasion. Absolutely a treasured find for any expert tea aficionados or beginners alike.
Huang Shan Mao Feng comes from the Huang Shan (Yellow Mountain) of the Anhui province where beautiful scenery as well as exceptional water is well known. Therefore, it is imperative that this tea is prepared with a great tasting water in order to reveal its full potential. We suggest 3-5 grams of tea per 6 oz water, infuse with hot but not boiling water for 1 to 2 minutes, depending on the intensity desired. As always, adjustments must be made to accommodate your own preference.
