The 100% handmade Huang Shan Mao Feng is back!
The first tea available for 2021 this is the one with the smallest supply to buy quickly.
The fully handmade Huang Shan Mao Feng comes from She Xian which is outside of the core region but still has many place with wonderful terroir.
The body is light and refreshing, like spring in the cup. With the thick body that is signature for Mao Feng is lacking a bit it's made up by the aroma. This aroma of this tea is not just one flower, but a bouquet. It has a complexity that I have never seen in an aroma.
Bright and full of energy. This tea truly is spring in a cup.
This year I also bought a little bit (50 grams) of a red tea (black tea) made with the same cultivar. While I didn't see it as worth selling on its own it makes for a super interesting tasting along with the Mao Feng as it allows you to see what role cultivar plays in a teas flavor. The red tea sample can be bought as an addition to the single ounce and comes free with the 50g option.
Due to the limited supply of the red tea, only a single serving of 5g will be added.
