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.

* Required Fields
Vivid green leaf with vegetal scent that brews a pale straw color tea. Tastes sweet with mineral and very light fresh greens. Very soft and mild with no bitterness or astringency.
A wonderful fresh tasting tea
This tea is OK, nice and fresh, but not my favourite.
This review is based on the 2015 harvest. Had a gongfu session with a glass pot. Gave the leaf a quick rinse. Steeping times: 30 seconds, 60, 90; 2 minutes, 5. The fuzzy dry leaf has various hues of green, which become more vibrant after steeping. I particularly liked the rinse coloration. Most of the leaves are whole. They consist mostly of individual leaves, and a few a leaf and a bud and two leaf. The dry leaf aroma has notes of gentle seaweed and corn. Once hit washed with water, the aroma becomes stronger, smelling of buttery zucchini and a general sweet, fresh green vegetable hodge-podge. The liquor is tinted with a very pale green. The body is full. Heavy with flavor, but not heavy itself – light in the mouth. Smooth and creamy texture. The first infusion tastes vegetal and a little sweet with sugar snap peas. Thereafter, the flavor becomes so sweet that it is reminiscent of a Taiwanese rolled high mountain oolong. Very candy-like. It also has a slight cooling effect in the back of the throat. This combination reminds me of the Japanese milk-mint candy. The liquor, though, retains its vegetal essence. Nothing was short of enjoyable, even though it’s been a year since the leaf was harvested.
A very light floral green tea and perfect for the morning when you just woke up. It is very light and refreshing. The leaves become bright green when they unfold in your glass infuser. It can be paired with any light scented honey like Linden or Acacia or just by itself because it does have that sweet aroma.
I have bought this earlier this year and liked it a little better then. It is a still a great and fresh tea, with a sweet flower and hay smell, no bitterness and a lovely taste. But are this batch harvested a bit later maybe? I think the leaves seem bigger and it doesn't have the same particularly tempting smell the former one i bought had. It might be it was just fresher then. Still a very good tea though!
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.
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.
