Description

This exceptional Grand Cru is one of the most famous Chinese teas. Its name refers to its place of production in Huang Shan (the Yellow Mountains) and the finesse of the harvest, referred to as Mao Feng.This exquisite green tea from the province of Anhui is grown in ideal climatic conditions. The tea plants are grown at an altitude of between 400 and 600 metres above sea level on a mountain massif culminating at an altitude of 1,864 metres, sometimes hidden behind the clouds before reappearing.The tea plants growing in this very humid region are described as Yun Wu, or “cloudy and misty”.

The reputation of Huang Shan Mao Feng also lies in the finesse of its harvest and its production: only one bud and the first leaf are picked then rolled.
