One of the legends about the origin of Huangshan Mao Feng says that in one tea plantation there lived a young man and a young woman who loved each other very much. The owner of the plantation wanted to marry this woman, so he ordered the young man to be killed. The beautiful woman searched a long time for the body of her fiancé in the mountains. When she found him, she cried until she turned into rain, and the body of her lover turned into a beautiful tea bush. Yellow Mountain's Fur Peak is among the top ten most famous teas in China.
The tea buds, covered with silver down and framed by two leaves, are reminiscent of mountain peaks. The technology used to work with such delicate raw material requires high skill and speed. To prevent the tea leaves from withering, the tea production process is completed on the day of picking. When brewed, the tea has a pinkish-gold tinge with an aroma of fresh spring greens. In China, it is said: "The first cup is the most fragrant, the second is the sweetest, and the third is the strongest."
