Chinese green tea can be classified into 9 basic shapes, and the Huangshan Maofeng tea is considered an Orchid shaped tea.
It's fragrance is strong even after three brews.
Huang Shan Mao Feng is a brand of baked green tea. Hailed as the best of Mao Feng tea, Huang Shan Mao Feng has a sparrow-tongue-like shape, silvery white fuzz, golden liquid, refreshingly mellow and sweet taste, and the brewed leaves are tender yellow.
The story of this special tea is inseparable from her inventor - tea merchant Xie Zhengan, who inherited the tea company Xieyutai from his forefathers.A major tycoon of his time, Xie Zhengan was a tea master in his own right.
At around 1875, he selected tea buds from a village in Fuxi and started making Huangshan Maofeng.It was an instant success. He became the richest man in Yellow Mountain and went on to own nine tea shops around China.
(The tea company was subsequently brought down by trade embargo and his son's addiction to opium. In modern times, it has started trading again as a corporate entity.) While Xie Zhengan's success has brought fame to this special tea, historians believe the cultivation of tea in the Yellow Mountain predates Xie Zhengan and may exist as early as Ming Dynasty. During that time, she is known as the Yellow Mountain Cloud Mist tea (Huangshan Yunwu). Qing dynasty chronicle Suhu Bianlu rated her as No. 1 amongst all teas.
