Tea Farm

The tea farm is located in the area above the city of Pu'er where a community of Dai people live. The farm received all major international organic certifications in 1998, which certify the farm's pesticide-free cultivation without artificial fertilisers.



As one of the most famous green teas in China, maofeng is no longer only produced in its region of origin in Huang Shan. This organic maofeng is grown at a high elevation of roughly 1,500m in the Wuliang Mountains in Yunnan. The tea is refreshing with floral and citrus notes, and is reminiscent of yuzu. The mildly mineral character give this tea a balanced character.

Chinese Green Tea

Chinese green tea differs from other teas because the leaves are roasted (青鍋 Qing Gu = Kill Green) after harvesting, which prevents further oxidation of the tea and gives it its typical nutty, buttery taste. There are a variety of Chinese green teas, with each one exhibiting a different shape, colour and taste. These differences can be attributed in large part to the tea’s region of origin, as Chinese green teas are often deeply rooted in local tea culture.

Laboratory Tests

We go to great lengths to identify the finest organic tea farms across the world’s most celebrated terroirs. All our teas are sourced directly from the farmer and, with a few exceptions, are certified organic or come from pesticide-free farms. Each batch of tea for every harvest is tested for pesticides and other pollutants in an independent German lab to ensure they meet our strict quality standards as well as HACCP food safety requirements.

Cultivation & Processing

The highlands of Yunnan have a mild, subtropical climate up to a high elevation. The highland slopes are mostly southern-facing, and are therefore more heavily influenced by the Indian Ocean and the Pacific.

This tea is grown at an elevation of 1,500m in the Wuliang Mountains above the city of Pu'er, far removed from industry. Rather than any major motorways, it is the historical Tea Horse Road that cuts through the tea fields. Traditionally, various large leafed cultivars are grown in Yunnan that in some cases stem from very old tea plants.

The tea is not oxidised, but rather briefly and carefully roasted in a pan (chao qing 炒青) for just 5 minutes. Thereafter the tea leaves are rolled until they have achieved the desired "fur peak" form (maofeng 毛峰). The tea is then dried in an oven for 10 minutes and laid out for final selection.

Single Origin

This tea is exclusively sourced from the above mentioned tea farm in the Wuliang Mountains. Sourced directly from the tea farmer.


Organic Certification


Brewing Guide

2 heaped tsp. per 100-300ml (70°C) water. Steep for 2-3 minutes. Suitable for several infusions.


High quality, airtight, resealable standing zipper pouch with 9 protective layers to preserve flavour and protect against oxidation and contamination.

Recommended Teapot

The ideal teapot for the traditional preparation of Huangshan Maofeng tea is a yixing teapot made from light-coloured clay. Alternatively, a glass teapot with an integrated sieve can be used, so long as the leaves are able to freely drift around inside the pot.

Recommended Storage

Ideally store in a quality tea caddy made from cherry tree bark (wooden, kabazaiku chazutsu) or an airtight, double-coated metal tin.
