Product Description

It is said that long ago a man and a woman, madly in love with each other, saw their happiness destroyed by a lord who took the woman as a concubine.

Driven half mad by this separation, the woman ran away to rejoin her lover only to find that the lord had had him killed. When she found the body of her lover in the mountains, she wept so much that her tears formed a torrent and her petrified body was transformed into a tea tree. Even today, that is the explanation given for the year-long humidity and cloudiness of the area.

The wonder of Huangshan Maofeng
In the Qing Dynasty, a tea merchant named Xie Zheng' an opened Xie Yu Tai tea shop in Shexian County. He led some people to Chongchuan and Tangkou and other tea gardens to choose such juicy shoots and after fine baking, he created the excellent flavor of high quality tea. The tea is filled with Pekoe, and the bud is like spike, named “Maofeng”. There comes the real Huangshan Maofeng. It is said that if Huangshan Maofeng is brewed with Huangshan spring water, there will be a fabulous view of white lotus flowers.

Huangshan Maofeng
Huangshan Maofeng tea was made by Xie Zheng'an in 1875 in the Qing Dynasty. Because of its Pekoe body, bud tip like spike, and the fresh leaves collected from the peak of Huangshan, it was called Huangshan Maofeng. There are the super-grade and grade one, two, and three of Huangshan Maofeng. The super-grade is harvested before Tomb-sweeping Day. One bud in one shoot is picked early, describing as "the sparrow mouth slightly open," Other grades of tea is picked from a bud in 1 to 2 shoots or in 2 to 3 shoots. Huangshan Maofeng is categorized into baked green tea. Thanks to "extremely fragrant, pure taste, clear soup, and embellish color", it is well-known as the tea boutique and one of China's top ten kinds of tea.
