From Vicony Teas

Huangshan Mao Feng tea (黄山毛峰) is a green tea produced in the Anhui province of China. The Tea is one of the ten 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.

Fuxi(富溪)is the name of a town of Huangshan, where tea merchant Xie Zhengan invented Huangshan Maofeng during the Qing Dynasty. Xie Zhengan, a major tycoon of his time, was a tea master in his own right. At around 1875, he selected tea buds from Fuxi and started making Huangshan Maofeng. It was an instant success. He became the richest man in Huangshan and went on to own nine tea shops around China. Until now, Fuxi Huangshan Maofeng is considered to be the best among all the Huangshan Maofeng produced in different places of Huangshan. It has much more beautiful appearance and unique and lovely taste and flavor. The Fuxi Huangshan Maofeng is the first crops teas harvested about 15 days before Qing Ming(Pure Brightness). You’d better order it before the end of April each year to ensure you can get it because of its limited quantities. Like Our Facebook Page to keep informed of the latest news.

Vicony Teas Company sent this to me as a free sample with my order. Based on their website, this is one of the top qualities in production. The tea is named “Pre-Ming” because it was picked before the Chinese “Qingming Festival,” marking its quality.

The dried leaves were comprised of a one bud to one leaf ratio. From a distance the leaves looked like jade: light and dark greens mixing with the pale leaf buds. The brewed leaves were more beautiful when brewed, and smelled vegetal, floral, with a tiny hint of nutty-smokiness.

The brewed tea was pale-green, and had very little color at all- the liquor was very light and clear. The flavor was light, floral, sweet, and a bit nutty in the finish. Each sip was silky smooth and crisp. The second brew was more sweet and floral than the first. Every sip was like drinking nectar. The third brew tasted much the same as the second, and didn’t lose any flavor. The fourth steeping brought out some vegetal notes, but retained the floral-sweetness of the other brews.

This tea was very good and refreshing. Not all “high quality” teas taste good, due to processing, storage, or other factors- this tea, however was wonderful. It would be interesting to taste other grades of Huangshan Maofeng tea to see the differences in flavor and appearance. I’m glad Vicony Teas sent me the free sample, and had a great time tasting it.
