I have two Mao Feng sample packs that will really get you into Mao Feng and help you really understand the different flavors, aromas, and mouthfeels that can come about in this seemingly simple tea.
Primo: The Primo Pack includes two teas from Cha Shan （岔山）a beautiful area with in the core region of Huang Shan. Cha Shan teas have amazing mouthfeels and depth. The third tea in the Primo pack is a Hou Gu Mao Feng （猴谷). This Mao Feng has less mouth feel but has a chestnut aroma which is a unique characteristic of Mao Feng. Hou Gu is also in the core region. The sample pack include two serving of each tea.
Daily Drinker: The Daily Drinker sample Pack includes two teas from Cha Shan again but include later picked teas. Later picked Mao Fengs are bigger and will have more body and stronger flavors but less mouthfeel. These teas will still be soft and will keep their refreshing flavors even against harsher brewings like grandpa style and on the go drinking.
The third tea in the pack is a mao feng from outside the core region, an area called Da Gu Yun （大谷运). This tea is an earlier picked tea but because of the location wont be as refreshing and lively. Instead it has a simple round pea note that is very enjoyable grandpa style or in gong fu cha. This is a great tea to read a book to or talk with friends over.

Chestnut Aroma Huang Shan Mao Feng.
It took me three trips to Hou gu （猴谷）to find a tea this good. The first two times I went I was amazed by the beautiful environment, but I found the making practices to be a little more mechanized than I wanted.
The body of this tea is light refreshing, but at the same time shows a depth and thickness. This mouthfeel is what makes Huang Shan Mao Feng so unique and famous. The rich mouthfeel is paired with a soft vegetle note and a chestnut aroma. The chestnut aroma is a hard to find aroma Huang Shan Mao Feng’s so I am very excited to be able to offer it to you.
A perfect tea for the hot summer days, I don’t expect this tea to see September.
This tea comes with a free sample of She Xian Huang Shan Mao Feng for comparison and maximum enjoyment.

One Ounce Hou Gu Mao Feng
Da Gu Yun (大谷运） Mao Feng
Located outside of the core region you will not find the same depth of flavor as core region Huang Shan Mao Fengs. That being said there is still a savoriness to this tea and a more singular smooth pea note. This is a great tea for people who are just getting into Mao Fengs. Like the core region Mao Feng, this is great by itself or grandpa style.
Notes of peas, cooked bok choy with a smooth, sweet, savory body.
