Yellow Mountain Fur Peak (Huangshan Maofeng)

(1 customer review)

From: $17.59/45g

Yellow Mountain Fur Peak is one of the most famous Chinese green teas. It comes from the Huang Shan (Yellow Mountain) area in Anhui province. On 26 March 2007, Chinese President Hu Jintao attended the ‘China National Year’ exhibition held in Russia and brought four famous Anhui teas, including Huangshan Maofeng, as a gift for Russian President Vladimir Putin.

There is no doubt that Huangshan Maofeng is a first-class green tea. It is made using only the bud and the first one, two or three leaves on the branch. It has a delicate orchid fragrance and a very fresh flavor.

Orchid Fragrance & Fresh Flavour

Appearance & Taste

The Yellow Mountain Fur Peak leaf is slender and slightly curly, resembling a bird’s tongue. It is green with a touch of yellow. It is covered with fuzzy white hair.

Since the picking time of this special tea corresponds to the time when orchids on the Yellow Mountain are in full bloom, it has a delicate orchid fragrance and a very fresh flavour.

Huangshan (Yellow Mountain) area, Anhui province

Origin

Yellow Mountain Fur Peak grows at latitude 30°08 North in the Huangshan (Yellow Mountain) area, Anhui province. Geology and geomorphology, mineral resources, species and hydrologic climate are very diverse and complex in this area. It is located at the transition between the subtropical and temperate zones, where there is rich precipitation and lush vegetation.

In addition to the humid climate, soft soil, smooth drainage and other natural conditions common to the region in general, the Huangshan area has its own characteristics, such as high mountains and deep valleys, which conceal hundreds of small streams as well as rich paintings and woods. Such conditions promote the growth of tea trees with fat and juicy leaves, which can be enjoyed across multiple brews.

1 review for Yellow Mountain Fur Peak (Huangshan Maofeng)

  1. Georgia H.

    Delicate aroma and flavor. The leaves were whole and beautiful color with a fresh scent before brewing. Once brewed the tea ‘soup’ was very light in color but big in flavor, with complex tastes.
