Mao Feng tea is a green tea produced in the Anhui province of China. The Tea is one of the most famous teas in China and can almost always be found on the China Famous Tea list. The special processing technique produces a special tea that is strong, yet very refreshing with its emerald-green young and tender tea leaves (mixture of one bud, one leaf and one bud and two leaves). The aroma is a pleasant reminiscence of fresh Orchid bloom. Every sip of Mao Feng tea promises a sweet and refreshing memory.
There's an old Chinese saying "famous mountains produce famous tea". Huang Shan is one of China's famous mountains for producing great Green teas and their Mao Feng is certainly one of the best. The tea is grown near Huangshan (Yellow) Mountain, which is home to many famous varieties of Green Tea. When picking the tea, only the new tea buds and the one or two leaves next to the bud are picked. It is said by local tea farmers that the leaves resemble orchid buds.
