Deep in the mountains of remote Northern Guizhou Province is an area where small tea producers enjoy an environment unspoilt by industry. Amongst the steep mountainsides and forest lie tea plantations producing exceptional teas.
We are proud that our Mao Feng tea is amongst those produced here. Clean and refreshing, brimming with unmissable vegetal & marine notes of spinach and seaweed. You’ll also find hints of jasmine, particularly in a second infusion as the vegetal notes make way a little. The curled dry leaves are small, only young leaves are used in this excellent tea, and are dark green with many downy light jade leaves and buds interspersed.
After brewing, the wet small tender leaves are yellowish green, delicate and light, like angel hair and little holes can be seen in the leaves, from insect bites due to the ecological farming methods. This is often a sign of natural or organic tea production.
With this tea, it’s even difficult to mess it up! That being said, we recommend brewing at 80°c to get the most out of this excellent tea, but slightly higher and for longer brews will bring a stronger, more intense brew, still without bitterness.
