More about Yellow Mountain Peaks tea:

Huangshan Mao Feng Tea is one kind of green tea produced in the Anhui province of China. The Tea is one of the most famous teas in China and can almost always be found on the China Famous Tea list. The tea is grown at the foot of Huangshan (Yellow) Mountain, which is home to many famous Chinese Green Teas. Huangshan Mao Feng Tea’s English translation is “Yellow Mountain Fur Peak” due to the small white hairs which cover the leaves and the shape of the processed leaves which resemble the peak of a mountain.
