From YOYO Tea Store

Huangshan Maofeng tea is a green tea produced in south eastern interior 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 tea is grown near Huangshan (Yellow Mountain), which is home to many famous varieties of Green Tea. Huangshan Mao Feng Tea’s English translation is “Yellow Mountain Fur Peak” due to the small white hairs which cover the leaves and the shape of the processed leaves which resemble the peak of a mountain. The best teas are 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.

MissB sent this one my way and i figured given the heat of the day this afternoon, it was a good choice. It was a nice change to the day, with a refreshing vegetal brew that was almost floral, but not enough to make it undrinkable for me. Overall a nice green tea….if there is a such a thing ;)

Received this from MissB (Thank you!!), and it’s absolutely perfect for today.
The leaf is all rock sugar/vegetal yumminess, and the tea, once steeped, carries on from where the dry leaf left off. Really lovely, with apple and cucumber notes, while continuing with the spinach and curly endive base, yet finishing sweet.
This one is really nice.

Flavors: Spinach, Sugar

Bought this on AliExpress, via YOYO Tea Company. The tin however says, “Pin Wei Ren Sheng” which when I Google it, says is a tea house in Chongqing, China. So I’ve listed it where I purchased it, but… well… This is so tricky, adding teas to the database. Any suggestions welcome.

As for the flavor: this is a beautiful tea, and it reminds me of a few others I’ve grabbed from AliExpress. Peach/apricot notes with something very floral in the background, much more so than any of the similarly-labelled teas I’ve had. I may have steeped it a bit too long as well, as it’s ever-so-slightly bitter and has an odd aftertaste, almost earthy metallic.
