Huangshan Maofeng Tea, formerly Huangshan Cloud Tea, is a masterwork well known to the world.

Huangshan Maofeng Tea grows in the mountains in Huangshan Scenic District 700 meters above sea level where there are cliffs piercing into clouds, fertile soil, cool air, adequate rain, short period of direct sunshine, and orchids growing everywhere sending the aroma very far. Growing in such surroundings, the tea buds are big and strong sending forth lasting sweet aroma.

Additionally, the technique of picking and producing tea is quite exquisite. The tea product therefore has a special character: the tea leaves look like tongues of birds with silver floss all about them, and are in the bright color of yellowish peak green; when infused in hot water, foggy steam with fresh fragrance is floating over the water. After being made, the liquor is clear and tastes fresheningly sweet with something of a bit bitterness.

Huangshan Maofeng, which are graded according to their quality, entered the tea market of London, Paris and Southeast Asian countries as early as 1976, and became world famous. It was listed as National Famous Tea in the Tea Appraisal Meeting held in Changsha in 1982.
