Tea Farm

The tea farm is located in an idyllic area, far removed from industry or major highways. The farm avoids the use of pesticides and produces its own fertiliser. The farm is well-known for a range of high-quality green teas that are all produced according to strict traditional methods.



As one of the most famous green teas in China, mao feng is no longer only produced in its region of origin in Huang Shan. This highest grade mao feng comes from an equally impressive terroir at Fanjing Shan in the province of Guizhou, one of the holiest mountains in Chinese buddhism. Produced according to strictly traditional standards using the large-leafed da bai cultivar, which is also used for white tea, this tea has a robust yet complex character typical of mao feng teas. The flavour features not only vegetal sweetness, but also fresh flair and pleasant umami. Overall this mao feng is activating and revitalising.

Chinese Green Tea

Chinese green tea differs from other teas because the leaves are roasted (青鍋 Qing Gu = Kill Green) after harvesting, which prevents further oxidation of the tea and gives it its typical nutty, buttery taste. There are a variety of Chinese green teas, with each one exhibiting a different shape, colour and taste. These differences can be attributed in large part to the tea’s region of origin, as Chinese green teas are often deeply rooted in local tea culture.

Cultivation & Processing

The impressive Fanjing Shan is the highest peak of the Wuling mountain range as well as an important holy mountain in Chinese buddhism where one can allegedly come closer to the future Maitreya Buddha. The mountain and surrounding region belong to one of the oldest nature reserves and are a UNESCO world heritage site. The small tea farm is located on the border of the nature reserve in a village inhabited mostly by an ethnic minority. The mild climate as well as protective forests are conducive to both tea and subsistence farming.

The large-leafed da bai cultivar, which comes from Fuding and is often used for white tea, lends the tea its especially full and revitalising character.

This tea is not oxidised. Directly after harvest the leaves are carefully roasted in a pan for 5 minutes (chao qing 炒青). Then the leaves are rolled until they achieve the desired "mountain peak" form (mao feng 毛峰). Thereafter they are roasted for 10 minutes in an oven and then laid out for final selection.

Single Origin

This tea is exclusively sourced from the above mentioned tea farm in Fanjing Shan. Sourced directly from the tea farmer.


Brewing Guide

2 heaped tsp per 100-300ml (70°C) water. Steep for 2-3 minutes. Suitable for several infusions.


High quality, airtight, resealable standing zipper pouch with 9 protective layers to preserve flavour and protect against oxidation and contamination.

Recommended Teapot

The ideal teapot for the traditional preparation of Huang Shan Mao Feng tea is a yixing teapot made from light-coloured clay. Alternatively, a glass teapot with an integrated sieve can be used, so long as the leaves are able to freely drift around inside the pot.

Recommended Storage

Ideally store in a quality tea caddy made from cherry tree bark (wooden, kabazaiku chazutsu) or an airtight, double-coated metal tin.
