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.
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.

Nice flavor! tasteful!
This is a relatively light tea so using more leaf and steeping for a little bit longer makes up for this if you like yours a little stronger. The liquor is a very pale yellow but it packs a lot of flavor! It tastes rich and every sip a bit different; some more vegetal, others indulgently buttery, others slightly nutty. And there is no bitterness, even after my longer than suggested steep. It's definitely a winner.
This is the tea that won my husband over to green tea. He used to drink black tea with milk and sugar, but now he asks for this one, plain, in the evenings. It is wonderful with food, too. It resteeps very nicely and is a staple in this house. Delicious, not grassy, and not even a hint of sourness.
After very weak first steeps, I figured out it takes almost twice the volume of this tea's long and twisted leaves to achieve a given weight compared to other teas' more compact leaves. Overall, a nice tea, although a bit too subtle for me. I find it lighter, less flavorful, and less complex than Dragon Well--my gold standard so far.
Very nice tea. Reminds me a lot of dragon well. This tea has a fairly mild taste and compared to the premium dragon well I drink (which I purchased somewhere else) this tea is not) it's flavor is less complex.
Still a very nice tea, but I personally prefer dragon well tea.
Excellent afternoon tea which can be brewed 2-3 times. 2nd brew tastes even better than the first one. Buds open beautifully and the tea has a nice aroma.
Best price for this tea that I found. Very nice flavor.
Huang Shan Mao Feng is a mild, slightly vegetal, slightly floral green. There is a similarity to Tie Guan Yin in that respect, but this is not as bold and much milder. It has no bitterness as all, but perhaps a bit of astringency while hot (goes away when cooler). While cooling, it does move into a slight grassy phase, but goes down so smooth.
This and Premium Dragon Well are my 2 favorite green teas from Teavivre. Highly recommend.
Dry Leaf: I get a sweet vegetal aroma. I can even see someone say grassy.
Wet Leaf: I get a vegetal aroma almost like a boiled green bean or something close to that.
Liquor: Clear and pale.
Taste: I get a light refreshing sweet vegetal flavor. The broth gives your tongue a slight dryness on your tongue that is nice.
This tea reminds me of a Long Jing and for all the Long Jing drinkers I would recommend you try this because I believe you will like this too.
Dry leaf is very long with partially twisted first leaf. Apart from its usual green texture I noticed a few leaves with somewhat yellow and brown hue to them. With a deep sniff dryness with hint of sweetness to it is revealed, and when dropped in pre-heated teapot you get some starchiness rising to nostrils. When it comes to visual appearance his tea has hardly any broken leaf and seems to take a bit more volume than my other Mao Fengs I have in cupboard.
I steeped this tea in glass 250 ml teapot three times (and I could have gone for more if I wasn’t full) with 80 Celsius water, and 60 – 60 – 90 seconds steep.
First infusion came out clear and really pale jade. During steeping barely any leaves sunk since I added them on top. Light bodied and sweet with lingering
fruity note (apricot, peach… not quite sure) that completes at tongue root after wallowing (peach). Every sip seems so thirst quenching, refreshing and amazingly good. As I empty pitcher I don’t see any kind of residue.
Second infusion is still clear like first but with more of jade tone to it. With slightly augmented peach notes comes a faint Tie Guan Yin-like note in background with just a hint of astringency. Few seeps in and I start to notice how my throat is getting a bit dry, almost sore-like, starchy…
The appearance of third infusion is identical to that of second. As I’m not intending to steep it further I removed wet leaves that filled my room with light Tie Guan Yin-like aroma. When it comes to tasting this infusion reminds me of 4th steep of Teavivre’s Tie Guan Yin (look it up in my previous notes) with grassy-vegetal body. At this point I thought that I might squeezed a bit too much out of the leaves and that I should’ve steep it just over a minute.
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.
