Mao Feng Green Tea

This green tea is of a superior quality, it has a wonderful character, with a refreshing delicate flavour; with all the goodness of green tea but without that bitter taste.

It is of the highest quality and comes from the high peak mountains in China, and is always plucked with a full bud and just one leaf.

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.

Chinese green tea.


Legend of Maofeng tea

According to local legend, 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
