Carefully picked and processed to deliver a sweet tea with no bitterness, HuangShan MaoFeng – like our Long Jing green tea – always makes it near the top of the list of China's top ten teas. TeaVivre's authentic, grade 1, HuangShan MaoFeng is grown near the peak of HuangShan mountain in Anhui province. Beautiful mountains can produce good teas; higher places can engender better aroma. Our Huang Shan Mao Feng is grown in an area between 1200 meters to 1400 meters high, which has proper sunlight and is covered by clouds and mist.
Recommend Brewing Guide:
There is an old Chinese proverb that says “Famous mountains produce famous tea”, and this applies well to TeaVivre's HuangShan MaoFeng. Literally “Yellow Mountain's mountain peak shaped, fur covered tea”, because of the shape of the leaves - which really sounds a lot better in Chinese – this tea is grown and produced by traditional methods on the forested mountainous upper slopes of Mt. HuangShan.
This year we've managed to secure a very high quality, early spring harvested tea with one bud and leaf of a yellow-green color. A great refreshing tea, when brewed it has a pale apricot color, strong orchid like aroma and long lasting, light, fresh taste – that has, like all premium green teas – no hint of bitterness whatsoever.
Second only to white teas, green teas such TeaVivre's premium HuangShan MaoFeng, have high levels of antioxidants and other natural chemicals that reputedly help reduce the incidence of cancer, promote good skin tone and help reduce the affects of aging. With high levels of vitamin C, fluoride and calcium, TeaVivre's HuangShan MaoFeng also promotes healthy teeth and bones.
For more information on the health benefits of Green teas, take a look at our article on Tea Health benefit.
Like all Green Teas, HuangShan MaoFeng should only be brewed in clean, mineral free, water at around 176 ºF (80 ºC) for 1 to 2 minutes, and can be infused 3 or 4 times.
As done in China, it is best brewed directly in a white ceramic cup or clear glass. This lets you enjoy the slowly changing shape of the leaves as they slowly absorb water while brewing.

Our HuangShan MaoFeng green tea comes from Anhui Province. The tea is from plantation located on the slopes of HuangShan Mountain in Anhui. The historical birthplace and home to the best MaoFeng teas, this amazingly beautiful area is a mix of high rugged mountains and dense forests, with the cool temperatures and perpetually misty conditions ideal for growing the delicate buds and leaves used to make HuangShan MaoFeng.
This Huang Shan Mao Feng Tea is from Mr. Kong who have been engaged in tea field for more than ten years. He focus on providing high quality teas to tea lovers all over the world and always produces more and more natural, safe and healthy teas including the Green tea we choose : Liu’an Guapian, Dragon Well Green Tea (Long Jing), Xin Yang Mao Jian and Tai Ping Hou Kui.
Mr. Kong elaborated his feeling about the tea culture: Tea Culture is a general concept which is different for people in different area. Although it is complex but there’s one thing that can be sure, that is the same as manage the enterprise, tea culture also needs management along with its quick development in the modern world.
Due to it's ideal tea growing environment of high mountains, cool weather and cloudy weather, the area around Mt. HuangShan in Anhui has been used to cultivate high quality tea for centuries. Modern HuangShan MaoFeng tea however traces its roots back to the late 1800's and a merchant called Xie Zheng An, who fled the war at the time and decided to setup a family tea business at HuangShan Mountain. Naming it after where it was produced – HuangShan mountain – and its appearance – looking like a fur covered mountain peak - the tea his family produced quickly became very popular in China due to its excellent quality and great taste and aroma.

Thank you for sending me free samples of this great tea! It is very easygoing and energy-boosting. And the most importantly it is very fresh. Almost all green teas sold in North American stores are old stock and taste like hay. The real green tea must be fresh, and Teavivre delivers it right from the gardens! Huang Shan Mao Feng makes 4-5 cups great from repeated steeps. Just follow instructions exactly as printed on the package.
This tea has a very good balance of all the flavors that I would expect from a good green tea. Delicious.
This is another green tea I received from Teavivre as part of their 2015 green tea assortment pack. This tea has beautiful dark, twisted leaves, and a strong vegetal smell when dry.It smells very fresh, like newly cut grass. This is a very smooth, fresh tea, with absolutely no bitterness. It's a very light and floral tasting tea, slightly vegetal but not overwhelmingly so. It has a floral aftertaste with a hint of sweetness. A very mild and delicate tea. Very enjoyable.
This tea smelled and tasted so fresh - it just felt so good to drink. It tasted vegetal, but not of dark greens, it had more of a green bean or asparagus flavour. It was also buttery and I got notes of sweet mountain dew. A beautiful tea that was a pleasure to drink.
The 2015 Huang Shan Mao Feng has a very fresh and enjoyable profile. It is nicely floral and nutty in aroma and taste. Moreover, this is one of the huang shan mao feng that does not turn astringent at all. For a straight green tea, I highly favour this one. I highly recommend this tea.
The aroma of these very pretty leaves is very fresh, very fresh and green indeed, and nutty. So, it starts out with a blend of chestnuts, water chestnuts, and edamame. After that the aroma fades to sweet peas, fresh spinach, and a tiny bit of smoke, like just a very very tiny whiff of smoke. I decided to bowl steep this tea, it is one of those green teas that take to bowl steeping really well, it like never gets bitter! The aroma of the leaves floating around happily in the water is a nutty blend of sweet peas, edamame, and chestnuts. Subtle with a gentle edge of sweetness. The taste is pretty fantastic, it starts with a nectar sweetness of distant spring flowers (do I detect a hint of tulip?) and moves right along into green with notes of sweet pea, edamame, lima bean, and lettuce. Finishing up with a smooth chestnut and sesame and a lingering honey aftertaste. My bowl was refilled a few times before the flavor faded away to delicate sweetness and no more, not the most lasting of teas, but certainly very delicious.
One hour ago I received my packet of this 2015 tea and upon opening it I got this lovely aroma of very fresh green tea. The taste is so yummy and without astringency and this tea is probably the best Mao Feng I have ever tasted. Highly recommended.
What a pleasant surprise was tasting this tea! I ordered simply because I had never tasted before a Mao Feng and it has become one of my favourites teas instantly. It is so silky and with no trace of bitterness that I adore it! Really nice the nutty aftertaste also. Moreover, it lasts three good infusions (western method).
Even though I mostly stick to blacks and oolongs I somehow picked up a sample of this in my last order. I brewed 4.5 grams in a 100mL gaiwan, and followed the steeping times indicated on this page. The liquor is so light it's almost clear. And the taste is just as light as the liquor would indicate. Quite floral with a bit of sweetness. Very reminiscent of honeysuckle. Zero bitterness and I personally can't detect any vegetal flavors either. Im glad I tried this one on a sweltering hot day like today, because it's just perfect for this type of weather.
Fantastic tea with beautiful leaves. Excellent flavor with a touch of natural sweetness. I'll be ordering again. Only thing that could make it better if it were organic.
Reply: The Huang Shan Mao Feng Green Tea is not appled for chemical residues test by the tea farmer. But this tea is planted and produced in ecological and natural enviornment. It is safe for drinking.
