Health Benefits of Huangshan Maofeng

Direct from the origin

The unique leaves of Maofeng come from the southeastern part of Anhui, China, a place rich with magnificent landscapes of trees, boulders, springs and mountains.

Farmer - Ms. Zhang

The scenic landscape of the Huangshan Mountains makes the job of Ms. Zhang all worth it. She has been planting and harvesting Maofeng tea leaves for almost a decade. She understands the importance of preserving the tea culture, especially in the Anhui province. “Every day, I look forward to visiting the farm. I believe that teas are significant and can help many people stay healthy. That is why I am committed to making sure that I help preserve our tea culture,” she said.

Farmland - Zhang Tang Tea Farm

Zhang Tang Tea Farm, It's nestled in the heart of the Yellow Mountains, the cool and misty area where this tea was originally produced. The tea leaves are planted 800 meters above sea level at the Yellow Mountains, where the high humidity allows the tea leaves to grow healthily and rich in fragrance. This Huangshan Maofeng tea is harvested early to mid-April in order to get its best flavor profile.  

There are many administrative areas in Huangshan but the most popular is Fuxi, also regarded as the birthplace of Huangshan Maofeng green tea. Villages with an average altitude of 800 meters in Yellow Mountains are ideal for growing the Maofeng leaves because of the high humidity.

History of Huangshan Maofeng

The tea was first brewed around 1050, during the Song Dynasty, by monks living in the Huangshan Mountains. The monks used tea leaves to brew to keep themselves awake during meditation.

In 1875, a man from Fuxi set up a tea house that offered specialty green tea that uses fresh leaves of one bud and one leaf. He sent the first batch of tea to Shanghai. From then on, Huangshan Maofeng became famous.

The tea is sometimes called the Yellow Mountain Fur Peak or Yellow Mountain Cloud Mist tea. Maofeng means “furry clouds” which refers to the clouds that often cover the Yellow Mountains.
