There is an old Chinese proverb that says “Famous mountains produce famous tea”, and this applies well to PureTea's Huang Shan Mao Feng.  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. Huang Shan.

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.

How to Make Huang Shan Mao Feng

Like all Green Teas, Huang Shan Mao Feng 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.
