Huangshan Maofeng Tea
To the uninitiated, all Mao Feng (Furry Peak) teas are created equal. Nothing could be farther from the truth!

The difference lies in how the product is processed. Black tea is allowed to ferment, then dried. It yields a denser flavor which, in some varieties, can please the palate of even diehard coffee drinkers, i.e., can serve as a substitute for coffee for some. Green tea, on the other hand, is not fermented. Hence, its flavor is lighter and more delicate, and therefore green tea more easily allows the nuances of the local flavor of camellia sinesis to shine through, since tea grown in one clime will differ from tea grown in another, just as grapes grown on one mountainsi
