HUANG SHAN MAO FENG
organic yellow tea
Prized since the Qing Dynasty for a compelling light floral aroma & fresh taste, this tea’s name comes from the shape of its leaves which are said to resemble a mountain peak covered in a downy fuzz.
Tea bushes grow at a high altitude surrounded by wildflowers & trees, absorbing the pristine flavours of the wilderness while developing high antioxidant levels from the terrain & growing conditions. Carefully hand-picked & skillfully dried to preserve the tea’s natural goodness.

Our Special Reserve Tea Collection celebrates the art of tea craftsmanship, supports biodiversity, the environment and small scale tea farmers. These are teas are also extraordinarily rich in antioxidants and beneficial properties due to unique growing conditions, the wild and heritage tea varietals that are used, as well as traditional production methods. Requiring great skill to produce, many of the teas in this collection can take a Tea Maker over 10 years to learn and by purchasing these teas you’re helping keep these traditions and unique tea varietals alive and thriving.
SILK ROAD teas are made with premium quality, fresh, organic botanicals. Exceptional freshness, combined with organic growing practices, results in higher antioxidant levels & superior flavour. What’s just as important as the premium quality ingredients we select for our teas, are the ingredients we never use – no artificial flavours or colours – just pure, healthy, deliciousness in every sip!
