About Mao Feng Green Tea

Mao feng green tea is a style of Chinese green tea. The term mao feng (毛峰) is often translated "fur peak" or "hairy peak", and refers to the shape of the leaves, which are covered in fine white hair and have tips with a shape like a mountain summit. The leaves of mao feng tea tend to be long, flat, and slightly curved.

Huang shan mao feng(黄山毛峰) is a well-known type of mao feng green tea, named for the region in which it is grown, near Huang Shan (Yellow Mountain) in Anhui, China. Mao feng is also grown in the Wuyi mountains and other regions of China, and even in other countries, including Nepal.

Other mao feng tea

Mao feng can also refer to black tea with similarly shaped leaves, such as Keemun mao feng; these teas have little in common other than the shape of the leaves, that they are reasonably high grades of tea, and that they are both commonly grown in Anhui province.

The dry tea in the bag is chopped quite fine, but smells really nice. Once the water's added, the aroma of the young tips comes through very clearly, smelling very similar to silver needle white teas.

The first taste is surprisingly sweet with a strong vegetal finish. The flavor is strong even while hot, but there's...

Mao Feng from De Theefabriek

Style: Mao Feng Green Tea – Region: Zhejiang, China

I might still have to work out some things with brewing this tea, because this second attempt tastes very different from the first.

It has a strong vegetal aroma and very little sweetness. It reminds me a little bit of Young Hyson right now which seems strange. After all, this tea is supposed to be mild whereas Youn...

Brewed tea in 9-10oz of water at 200F for 3 min first steep.

It had a nutty scent kind of like long jin (dragonwell). I could tell from the scent of the liquor and the wet leaves that this would be a top-quality tea.

The flavor is actually somewhat simple, but very pure. I get nuttiness/toastyness akin to the sce...
