Huangshan Mao Feng tea (黄山毛峰) is a green tea produced in the Anhui province of China. The Tea is one of the most famous teas in China and can almost always be found on the China Famous Tealist. The tea is grown near Huangshan (Yellow) Mountain, which is home to many famous varieties of Green Tea. Huangshan Mao Feng Tea's English translation is "Yellow Mountain Fur Peak" due to the small white hairs which cover the leaves and the shape of the processed leaves which resemble the peak of a mountain. The best teas are picked in the early Spring before China's Qingming Festival. When picking the tea, only the new tea buds and the leaf next to the bud are picked. It is said by local tea farmers that the leaves resemble orchid buds.

 

According to local legend, there was a young scholar and a beautiful local girl fell madly in love. A local landowner saw the girl picking tea and wanted her for himself. He forced the girl's parents to make their daughter marry him. On the night before the wedding, the young girl snuck out of the landowners house only to find that the landowner had murdered the scholar. She went to his grave and cried until she became the rain. The scholar's body became a tea tree.

 

Huangshan Maofeng is one of the top ten greatest teas of China. Its reputation and status can be traced back to the Qing Dynasty. A type of fried green tea, Maofeng is a living testimony to the old adage ‘famous mountains produce excellent teas’. Its place of origin is the She County in Anhui Province. Maofeng is harvested between Qingming and Guyu (a period that covers early to mid April). Tea growers pick the most vibrant-looking buds before hand-frying them. The tea leaves are slightly curled, green in color with a tinge of yellow hue. When brewed, the liquor yields a light green color with yellow undertones. Such colors show the freshness of the tea. Maofeng tastes extremely smooth and aromatic with a lingering aftertaste. Maofeng tea leaves have a thin layer of frosty coat on their surface, resembling tiny hairs. This is where the name Maofeng, which literally means ‘hairy peak’ in Chinese comes from.

 

Maofeng is classified into four different grades, ranging from premium to third grade. Premium Maofeng has the following characteristics: tender buds, leaves shaped like the tongue of a sparrow with a frosty coating and golden sheen, mellow but lingering aroma and clear liquor when brewed.
