Description

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.
