     A tea family with presence in Vancouver.  

    You may have met Dylis Xu, a tea friend and sometimes guest bartender, at our tea bar.  Her hometown is in HuangShan (a most fabled origin for tea), and her family owns a stunning little farm.  After a long process to bring some of their 2021 tea to Vancouver, we finally have some MaoFeng at our tea bar!

    If you haven’t seen this video yet, check it out!  Dylis talks about her family’s tea.

     

    HUANG SHAN MAO FENG

    Huang Shan (黄山), literally translated as Yellow Mountain, is often referred to as the most famous and culturally important mountain range in China. According to legend, it is in this mountain that Shen Nong (yup… the guy who ‘discovered’ tea) ascended to heaven from 黄山. It is, nowadays, a UNESCO World Heritage site and a most important origin for tea.

    Heavily influenced by Confucianism, Chinese scholars often produce lists: the top 10 mountains, the best water for tea, and (of course) the most important teas in China. I haven’t seen a single one of those lists that does not feature Huang Shan among the mountains and Mao Feng among the teas.

    Handcrafting:  
    Mao Feng is a pan-fired green tea, quite different from the steamed teas that are popular in Japan.  After firing, the tea is very lightly rolled and dried. Because of this, as you brew the tea, the leaves will open and strongly resemble freshly picked, LIVE leaves.
