Greener Style Huangshan Maofeng:

Traditional style Huangshan Maofeng is yellowish from the heating style during processing. There is also a new and greener style. For a fresher, lighter tasting alternative that some people may prefer. Tea Hong’s Huangshan Cuiyu is produced from plucking before the lunar almanac demarkation of “guyu” — the first rain for seeding, around early to mid-April — for optimum quality.

Taste Profile

Soft, round, floral aroma with a warm undertone of steamed mung beans and accents of fragrant leaves. Smooth body. Mildly sweet infusion in light tones of malt and raw nuts. Accented with tints of leafy arrowhead and peach skin. Hints of woodsy bitterness in mildly cooling aftertaste.

Infusion tips 

This is a light tasting, non-demanding green tea suitable for the large pot or big mug. Make it stronger for a perk in the morning or lighter for drinking throughout the day. Use 90~95°C water for a stronger tea or 80~85°C for a smoother one. Remember the leaves are very spread out so visually each gram looks like a lot more than the tighter leaves, say of a black tea. Use ample leaves for good taste, say 1g per 100 ml of water, and can go up to 2.5 g.

* We shall be discontinuing this variety in the online retail shop once the current stock is depleted, but will still keep it for export and wholesale. The current stock for online is from 2016, but well-kept in chilled storage.

    lively taste

    I did not notice this tea until last week so I ordered it for this seemed a better value alternative than the “spring equinox” version. I got it today and have been drinking it whole day. Not tired of it at all! Surprising good and refreshing and lively taste for the price. Good companion when you have to sit at the desk all day for piles of numbers to go through like me 🙁
