ORIGIN

“Beautiful mountain cultivate excellent tea.” Exactly as the Chinese say, the scenic mountain Huangshan in Anhui creates for us Huangshan Maofeng.Huangshan Mountain is well known for its “Four Wonders”: cliff, creek, cloud and pine. The Ming Dynasty traveller and geographer Xu Xiake (1586-1641) left us with this admiration:


Returning from Wuyue,
No need to see other mountains;
Returning from Huangshan,
No need to see Wuyue.


Huangshan Maofeng green tea grows on steep slopes along deep valleys locating 1200 metres up in the mountains. The valleys have a special micro climate for the tea plantation: short sunshine, plentiful rainfall, high humidity and rich soil. What is more, numerous varieties of wild flowers are spread among the tea plants. The flowers bloom in spring when the green tea spring buds are also mature for harvest. This is why Huangshan Maofeng carries a special flowery fragrance!
