The tea legend is of a young tea picker in love with a local scholar but forced to marry a wealthy landowner. The night before her wedding, she went to see her scholar love only to find that he had been murdered by the landowner. She cried all night until she turned into rain and the first Maofeng tea tree began to grow.

Huangshan Maofeng is consistently in the top 10 lists of finest Chinese teas. It is spring harvested from the Yellow mountain area of East China, which has the perfect climate and humidity for this tea varietal. It produces a deliciously sweet and fragrant tea full of gentle floral notes.
