Our Huang Shan Mao Feng comes from the first picking in early spring, when the finest teas are selected, and is a beautiful example of one of China's 'Ten Famous Teas.' A real Champagne tea and one every Chinese and green tea lover should really experience fresh.

While a definitive list for China's ten 'Famous Teas' seems constantly up for debate - with different sources frequently citing their list as the last word on the subject - Huang Shan Mao Feng is generally accepted as one of China's famous ten. 

While there may be some debate as to which are China's most famous, there is no doubting the quality of this very special tea. 


  • Clean sweet floral tones, subtle green freshness and just a hint of nuttiness.
  • Our Huang Shan Mao Feng provides a great example of a higher mountain Chinese tea, filled with refreshing floral notes, hints of meadow grasses and a long lasting, almost nutty finish.

  • Longer & Less - for a typical European style of brewing we recommend: 

    1 tbsp (3g) of loose leaf tea per person into a pot of around 80º water. (Allow freshly boiled water to stand for 2 minutes) Infuse for around 2 minutes. For subsequent infusions increase the time by 1 minute each round. 

    Can be infused 2 or 3 times this way. 

    Shorter & More - for a more traditional Asian (Gong Fu) style of brewing we recommend: 

    1 heaped tbsp (5g) of loose leaf tea with around 150ml of 80º water. (Allow freshly boiled water to stand for 2 minutes) Infuse for around 45 seconds. For subsequent infusions increase the time by 20-30 seconds each round. 

    Can be infused 4 or 5 times this way.
