This tea is named after the mountain where it is produced.
Why we carry this tea: A great tea similar to Huang Shan Mao Feng while having its own unique characters. We are proud of being one of the few vendors outside southeastern China that carry this tea, and probably still the only vendor offering this tea out of China.
Description from the Life In Teacup Jan. 2012 blog entry: This tea is from an area right next to the producing region of Huang Shan Mao Feng. The appearance of this tea is quite similar to Huang Shan Mao Feng too, due to the similar processing techniques used. But this tea has a lot of nice nuances, floral, herbal, incense, and something subtle and mysterious.
