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.

I thought this was a really good green, with all the characteristics of green. It did smell at first but it was easy to get used to, and the taste was very distinctive and good. Not too strong or mellow. Just right. Good price too. I'll be getting this again.
Beautiful green leaves that are thin, wiry, and furry. This is a very well-balanced green tea, it has nutty and floral notes with a very toasty, sweet aftertaste that fades quickly but is not forgotten. This tea has good character to it, and has a fair amount of complexity without being too complex. It is very enjoyable because it is so easy to brew. This tea is also great value - it is priced very well for its high quality.
One of my absolute new favourites! The tea has a particularly tempting and sweet smell when you open the bag and quite dark green leaves. Easy to brew, it doesn't get bitter even if you leave it for too long or uses a bit to warm water. Very recommended.
I love this tea! It is smooth and sweet, never astringent or bitter. The mineral quality makes it so refreshing that I feel like I could down a large glass at once. I really should try it iced. This was one of the first green teas my husband liked, and was a big part of converting him from black tea with loads of milk and sugar to plain, good greens, whites, and puerhs.
I opened this package to reveal an assortment of beautiful leaves! The dry leaf consisted of long forest green tendrils spread with silver downy buds. They smelled of green beans and spinach. I placed this forest of tea in my warmed kyusu and gave it a shake. My brewing vessel gave off a deep vegetal and seaweed aroma. I brewed up a few cups immediately. The liquor was a pale glistening topaz, and the steeped leaves had a robust edamame tone. The initial sip was tasted of vegetal broth and forest moss. This brew had a very deep and vegetal body with a light sweetness at the end. This was a wonderful brew! I would consider this to be on the more darker and heavier side of this company's spring harvests. I enjoyed every bit of it!
The leaf itself smells like bitter salad greens, but the liquid is very mild, tasting faintly of corn, and as the description reads, not bitter at all. For the second steep, I left it in for a little longer than the (gongfu) recommendation, and it's still quite mild. Third steep with slightly hotter water is more vegetal, like zucchini. The water I used may have been cooler than the recommendation regardless.
Thanks again for the sample, Teavivre! This will be the last of the new batch to review. The leaves here look wild and tangled, but I know the tea farmers put great care into picking the leaves… it just LOOKS like a mess! The bright green leaves have a sweet corn and cream fragrance. I used half of a sample pouch (so around 2.5 grams)… that seems to work for all of these big leafy green teas I’ve tried, if you are brewing in a mug. The pale brew is delicious – some more cream and corn to match the scent of the dry leaves, with some added nuttiness. I think this is what I imagine the flavor should be if I think “mao feng”. VERY delicious! The second steep wasn’t as good because of my own fault – I didn’t steep the perfect cup (the temperature should have been hotter and the time longer – not paying enough attention.) It is impossible for me to pick a favorite Teavivre green tea. I have loved all of them, both from this year and last year. Steep #1 // half a sample (around 2.5 grams) for 11 ounce mug // 30 minutes after boiling // 2 minute steep Steep #2 // 32 minutes after boiling // 2 minute steep Harvest: April 2015
2015 Huang Shan Mao Feng. Leaves are jade colored, small and curly and the've strong and fresh aroma which has nice fruity tones. Brew is pale yellow in color and has mild aroma. Flavour is really smooth and fresh. It has fruity and floral notes and nutty aftertaste which gives nice balance to the taste. It feels buttery on the tongue and is not bitter or astrigent at all. I can recommend this, really good one.
I used 2 tsp of leaf, and gave it 3 minutes in water cooled to 180 degrees. The resulting liquor is a clear pale green, and the scent is mildly grassy. The scent of the dry leaf is stronger – fresh green vegetables with a light floral edge. The overall taste is a lot lighter than I expected, and I think for my next cup I might use a little more leaf and leave it for longer (possibly up to 4/4.5 minutes). That’s unusual behaviour for me with a green tea, but I’m glad I underdid things first time in any case. The flavour savoury, with mild hints of buttered green vegetables; green beans and sugar snap peas primarily. There’s a slight pepperiness to the initial sip that’s really rather pleasant, but the cup as a whole is very, very smooth. I’m glad I’ve managed to prove to myself that not all green teas are strong and bitter, because at one point it would have been very easy for me to give up on green tea entirely. I would have missed out on this, had I done so, and on discovering that there are varieties that I do really enjoy. That’s probably been the biggest revelation of my tea journey so far, and it makes me glad that I persevered. This review was originally published on Steepster by Scheherazade in May, 2015.

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.
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.
