2019 Spring Huang Shan Mao Feng - Bird
Our organic Huangshan Maofeng tea comes from Xiuning County, which is a nationally renowned organic tea-producing county in China. This tea was plucked in the early spring when the tea buds are most tender and rich in nutrients, making this a first-flush tea. Only one bud and one or two leaves is permitted to be hand-plucked for this high quality tea. The dry tea leaves are fine and straight with a yellowish, green color and finishing off with a strong fragrance.
This tea has a smooth, sweet vegetal flavor, with a hint of savoriness & orchid undertone that comes out in later steeps. The leaves start out as a bright verdant green that then takes on a lovely tint of yellow as they unfurl, with the tea itself a bright golden green.
