Furry Peak - Mao Feng
Our Mountain Green tea contains only the finest and freshest buds. This tea variety, Mao Feng (which translates as ‘furry peak’) gets it name from the leaves’ fine white down as well as their shape, which resembles a mountain peak. Produced at an altitude of 700-800m above sea level in the beautiful area of the Yellow Mountain (Huangshan), the tea has apricot and peach notes from the abundance of wild fruit trees growing on the mountain.
“The Mountain Green tea leaves are delightfully fresh with a furry cover”
This tea is sourced from the Yellow Mountain in the Anhui province. One of the most beautiful natural landscapes with its rolling clouds and steep rock faces. The humidity provides a perfect environment for growing this tea.
3 tbsp per cup (250ml); water at temperature 75-85°C; rinse leaves; infuse for 1-2 minutes.
Depending on how strong or mild you like your tea, vary the amount of tea leaves used.
The leaves are delicate, for best results we recommend you pour the hot water on the side of the cut not over the leaves. If the leaves infuse for too long or the water temperature too high the tea may taste bitter.
The second infusion can be even better than the first.
