Our organic Huangshan Maofeng tea comes from Xiuning County, which is a nationally renowned organic tea-producing county in China. The plucking of this tea was carried out at Ming Qian period in early spring when the tea buds were very tender and rich in nutrients. Only the one bud and one leaf or one bud with two leaves is allowed to be hand-plucked for making this tea. For making this tea, the plucking and processing procedures must be completed in the same one day. The finished tea leaves are fine and straight and have combined not only yellowish green color, but also strong fragrance. This tea has delightful fresh aroma and can give you a comfortable smooth, sweet drinking feeling rolling over the tongue without any bitterness.
As one of our highly recommended high-mountain teas, this Organic Huang Shan Mao Feng Green tea has sweet taste and lovely greenish color.

The cloud-covered mountains, rich soil, meandering streams, sufficient sunlight and plentiful rain - all these advantageous natural conditions make this area deserves its long-held reputation as an ideal tea producing area. It is no wonder that teas from this garden with wild flowers, grass and trees around carry a natural sweet taste.
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.
Huangshan large leaf species belongs to dwarf variety whose leaves tend to grow in the horizontal direction and the buds of this species are very tender and always covered with numerous microvilli (fuzz). This species has strong ability to put forth buds in spring and better resistance to severe cold in winter. Tea leaves of this species are high in phytochemicals. For one bud tea with two leaves, just as an example, the contents of amino acids, polyphenolic compounds and water extract account for 5.20%，24.50% and 44.03% respectively. Besides, each gram of dry leaves contains up to 138.04 mg of catechinic acid.
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.

This is a curious tea. It reminded me a lot of Huo Shan Huang Ya Yellow Tea, with its delicate leaves and sweet scent and flavor. But, I found this tea more astringent and it also had this mouthwatering effect and sweet, sugar-water aftertaste that I didn't note in the yellow tea. I found it much more rich than the Organic Hangzhou Tian Mu Qing Ding Green Tea, for the sake of comparison. As far as green teas go, I'd say that this one was moderate in terms of richness, I'd say that the Organic Tian Mu Yun Wu Green Tea was richer. The taste is sweet, like sweet corn. It's a delicate taste, but it's not light, it's not something you have to search for. The astringency increased over the course of several brewings, so the lightly astringent taste became more of a dry mouth feeling later on. Yet, there was also the mouthwatering feel that coincided with this. It didn't entirely make up for it, but it did help. That mouthwatering feel was nice and left a sweet taste in my mouth, like sugary corn. I noticed that when drinking the tea more quickly, the astringency built up a lot more. So, if that's a taste that you'd like to have less of, take sips. I've found that it allows the astringency to calm down a bit so it's more of a pleasant experience. Overall, this has a nice complexity and some good notes. I just think that it was a bit too astringent for me. That's not a note that I tend to like. It feels like I might be able to lessen it by altering the brewing method a bit, but because there wasn't a cup I had without that astringency, I don't think it will be avoidable. The same could be said for the other green teas I mentioned. I found the yellow tea less astringent, by comparison. Brewing method: 4 oz cup with full cup strainer, 80ºC, ~ 1 Tbsp tea leaves, for 45 seconds, 60 seconds, and so on.
Very good, has the qualities of a high quality Huang Shan Mao Feng. There is a light elegant green floral flavor that lingers afterwards. But in my opinion, unlike many other greens such as Longjing, this tea is not about and immediately recognizable flavor. Rather, it is more about the combination of the light elegant kind of flavor with an easy to drink and lingering salivating and thirst quenching property. Understated, but it grows on you.
Got a tasting sample and again quite a lot of broken leaves in the sample Mild taste with hay and floral notes Not a very Long After taste but Pleasant Nice every day tea but a bit expensive Good for 3 steeps I cut off one Star because of the broken leaves
I'm a green tea lover and I think that this green tea has the softness in taste and color that everyone expects from a green tea. The quality is beyond the best. I will buy it again without doubts.
Love this tea. The excellent quality and flavor from Teavivre are an ongoing pleasure for me.
