Huang Shen Mao Feng Green Tea
Brew with water at 75 to 80 degrees and brew for 2 to 3 minutes, be careful not to over infuse
Huang Shen Mao Feng Green Tea comes from the Anhui province and is one of the most famous Chinese Green Teas ever made. This accolade has been earned after years of cultivation and production, and now, Huang Shen Mao Feng Green Tea is known and loved around the world. It is grown near the renowned Huangshan yellow mountain range which, translated, means: “Yellow Mountain Fur Peak”.
When it comes to Huang Shen Mao Feng Green Tea, Yellow Mountain Fur Peak refers to the small white hairs that appear on the leaves. This tea is picked in the early spring when the first fresh buds unfurl. It produces an enticingly grassy flavour and an enchanting aroma. Better still, there are benefits to be had from consuming Huang Shen Mao Feng Green Tea as part of a healthy and active lifestyle.
In fact, the frequent consumption of this brew can promote the immune system, boost the metabolism, lower “bad” LDL cholesterol, reduce the risks of developing Type II Diabetes, improve oral health, enhance cognitive function, stimulate the nervous system, and maintain mental alertness levels. Its best feature by far, however, is the fact that Huang Shen Mao Feng Green Tea, when brewed just right, tastes heavenly.
The Anhui province of China, located in the east of the country, is famous for two main teas: Keemun Tea and Huang Shen Mao Feng Tea, also called Huang Shan Mao Feng Tea. In 1990, the Huangshan Mountain range, where Huang Shan Mao Feng Tea grows, was named a UNESCO World Heritage site, which helped to preserve the tea plants and fields surrounding the region.
The rich red clay and higher elevations around the mountains make perfect terroir for tea, which is why tea has been grown near the Huangshan Mountain Range for thousands of years. It comes as no surprise, then, that after thousands of years of cultivation, Huang Shen Mao Feng Green Tea is one of the finest, one of the tastiest, and perhaps one of the most inspiring teas ever made in China.

The effect of this connectivity led also to the improvement of cognitive improvement as proven by the volunteers who, after consuming the extract, tested significantly better for memory tasks. Furthermore, a recent meta-analysis of 13 Green Tea-related observational studies found that volunteers who drank the most Green Tea had a 28% lower risk of a coronary artery disease than those who drank the least Green Tea.
