HUANGSHAN MAOFENG (WILD) - 黄山毛峰(野生)

HUANGSHAN MAOFENG (WILD) - 黄山毛峰(野生)

from 9.00

Category: Green

Origin: China

Harvest: Spring 2019

This wild Maofeng is harvested on the Yellow Mountain located in Anhui Province of China. This wild tea was grown naturally with no fertilizer or pesticides. Compared to a tea farm that receives regular maintenance, it makes up for its lack of visually profile in flavors. This is the type of tea my grandparents, parents and myself grew up drinking. It’s easy to brew, and the flavor seems to get stronger with each additional brew (up to 5 or 6 steeps).

Tasting Notes: nutty sweetness with lingering mineral notes
