From TeaSpring

Cha Wang (Tea King) is our highest grade Huang Shan Mao Feng tea. The tea leaves used are picked only on 28 and 29 March 2006, a period regarded as the best for this tea this particular year. Cha Wang Huang Shan Mao Feng is currently the tea chosen by Chinese Foreign Affair department to serve foreign VIP visitors. In China, it is known as “Guo Jia Li Ping Cha” or National Gift Tea.
Our Huang Shan Mao Feng comes from the tea company owned by Mr. Xie Yi Ping, a descendant of the original creator of this tea (Mr. Xie Zheng An). It is made using the traditional processing method invented in the late Qing Dynasty during the reign of Guangxu Emperor and passed down from six generations ago. To ensure its authenticity, we will provide an anti-fake label issued by Quality Control Department (for 100 grams and above only).

This product is certified organic by An Hui Province Tian Yuan Organic Food Center.

Other names:
Tea King Yellow Mountain’s Fur Peak, Guo Jia Li Ping Cha, National Gift Tea

I have not done much with green teas, in particular high quality green teas like this one. It was not like I envisioned. The first few infusions were very sweet tasting. The liquor was overall very delicate and light in flavor. I used a porcelain gaiwan and enjoyed many infusions. The sweetness dissipated in the latter infusions and was replaced by a light tanginess. I may lack the vocabulary to describe some of my tea experiences, and since this tea is quite different from what I normally drink, this note may suffer for it. As for the aroma, the best way I can describe it is hay. It was decidedly not floral to my nose. Not until the later steepings did I detect anything floral from the infused leaves.

To make it simple: Excellent tasting high grade mao feng.

Right after receiving the shipment of the fresh tea, I boiled some water, poured 0,5 dl or so to my 2 dl gaiwan, waited for a moment for the temperature to settle between the water and the vessel, added a spoonful of tea which is probably about 2 grams, poured some hot water, around 90°C at this time I suppose, and infused for a minute or maybe a bit more. Result: sweet nectar, rich but balanced flavour. I even got some hui gan from the one cup despite of eating breakfast on top.

Already at this point I can say this is bound to be one of the top teas of this spring.

Pretty nice. Didn’t blow my mind, but this is a solid Mao Feng.
