This is a tea of long history since the Tang dynasty. It is believed that this is a remake or continuation of a historical tea called "Huang Shan Tea in the Clouds" (黄山云雾茶).

In 1875 a tea merchant, Xie Zheng An, set up a tea company near Huangshan to meet the increasing demand for Chinese tea.

He led his team of pickers into Huangshan and chose the freshest, fattest tea buds to make tea. The resulting product was a tea which retained its fine hair (botanically called trichomes) and tips shaped like a mountain peaks ('feng'), leading to it being called "hairy mountain peak". 

This tea is one of China's top ten teas due to its freshness and floral aromas. It does not become astringent even brewing with high-temperature water. 

This tea is a China Geographical Indicator registered product.

We used our Parchmen Tea Evaluator Set to brew the 2022 Spring Huang Shan Mao Feng, at 3 gm to 150 ml at a rather high temperature of 90°C for 45 sec, using filtered water. It brews a pale yellowish colour with sweet, floral and vibrant flavours on a syrupy mouthfeel.

 

PROCESS 

The tea is picked early in the mornings when there's no rain. 

The tea is then laid flat to allow withering to reduce the moisture level of the tea. 

Subsequently, charcoal roasting is used to kill green and dry the tea. 

FLAVOUR

Fresh green with notes of orchid aromas.
