Tea is known to have been cultivated in the world-famous HuangShanMountains as far back as the days of the Northern Song Dynasty (960-1127 AC). Later in history, local tea became widely recognized and praised all over the Celestial Empire. The most widely-known sort of Huang Shan Mao Feng grows high in the mountain plantations at the altitude of 700-800 meters above sea level. The best gradation is harvested in the beginning of April. Only the youngest flushes with tender juicy buds and one or two fleshy leaves which had just sprouted are suitable for this tea. To ensure the tea’s freshness, the leaves picked in the morning are processed in the afternoon of the same day and the afternoon picking – no later than the same night. Huang Shan Mao Feng processing requires special skill and experience and is only done manually.

Robust pointed tea leaves of Huang Shan Mao Feng resemble sparrow tongues and are colored in pale shades of light green. The tea produces clear liquor with rich slightly sweet aroma reminiscent of magnolia in bloom.
