From Grace Rare Tea

One of China’s most famous green teas, this offering is a seasonal selection grown in the high altitude mists of the unique Huangshan Mountain Range. This Mao Feng green tea is picked in the early Spring before China’s Qingming Festival.

When picking the tea, only the new tea buds and the leaf next to the bud are picked. It is said by local tea farmers that the leaves resemble orchid buds. Roughly translated as “Yellow Mountain Fur Peak”, this tea is easily recognizable by the silvery downy hairs that cover the leaves’ sharp, pointed tips.

When brewed, this Huangshan Mao Feng tea produces a remarkably smooth and elegant cup.

This is priced similarly to the Huangshan Mao Feng which I purchased from goarteastore.com (“supreme” grade. The tea is similar in size, shape, and color, but it is less uniform in appearance. There seem to be less complete budsets, and a touch of random stemmy stuff. If I had to guess, this might be a step below in grade or maybe rejects from a higher grade. Aroma and flavor are similar, however this one has a little more of a “milky” quality in taste and isn’t quite as enjoyable. For roughly the same price, I would go with the other tea.

I didn’t realize GRT sold as Huang Shan Mao Feng. The one from Teavivre and one from Harney are at the top of our list of favorite green teas.

Yes, I will have to try those when I get a chance. I think this variety could easily be a favorite for me if I could find one where the flavors are a bit more pronounced and with more of a lasting aftertaste.

I think most interesting about this both this tea from Grace Rare Teas and the competitor’s tea from goarteastore.com, is both offerings have a nice licorice-like note. Unusual quality in a tea, and something I really like.
