Huangshan Maofeng Supreme, traditional green tea
Huangshan (translate: Yellow Mountain) is an UNESCO World Heritage Site and a China national conservation. Besides beautiful sceneries, it is also the origin for many a fine teas, such as Huangshan Maofeng. The tender young leaf shoot to make Tea Hong’s Huangshan Maofeng Supreme is always plucked with one or two tiny immediate leaves before Spring Equinoix, and always before Qing Ming. Always from the few small family tea farms in the high mountains that we buy from. It is a rare quality even in the market in Huangshan, and if you ever found it, would be at a much higher price. Working directly with producers is a principal at Tea Hong. While offering quality at a reasonable price is one immediate benefit that you as a consumer can enjoy, there are more important reasons and not so immediate results that we aim at. Your patronage means great support for our cause.

Soft, floral, and yet warm aroma of steamed mung bean with light accents of gardenia and hint of lily. Characteristic Huangshan green tea style of smokey undertone. Silky soft infusion that is sweet and malty, tinkling with minute touches of fresh herbs and cream. Sweet aftertaste with a cereal suggestion and a light lip burning sensation.
For better accents of its aroma, use shorter infusion durations and more leaves. Smaller infusion vessels fare better than larger ones. 85°C gives you a sweeter, smoother and more floral note, higher temperature a stronger body and more bites in both the aroma and taste.
