Today’s article will discuss Mao Feng green tea.

What is Mao Feng Tea?

Mao Feng is one of the many famous teas of China.

It is a green tea originating from the Huangshan (yellow mountain) region of Anhui, China.

Although Mao Feng is also grown in many other regions of China, it is said that the best Mao Feng tea is grown in Huangshan using traditional processing methods.

Chinese tea farmers often say that Mao Feng tea leaves resemble orchid buds.

The Meaning of Mao Feng

Mao Feng translates to ‘fur peak’ and describes the visual appearance of the processed leaves.

The tea contains unopened tea buds which are typically covered in white hair, or ‘fur’, which is said to resemble a frosty mountain peak.

Although the Huangshan mao feng tea from the Anhui province is on the top 10 famous Chinese list, it’s not the only mao feng tea in China, or even in the world. This tea is produced in other Chinese provinces too, such as Yunnan, Fujian and Zhejiang, and even in other countries. In fact, mao feng can be processed into a black tea too – for example Keemun Mao Feng.
