2020 Spring Xin Yang Mao Jian
This spring-picked Xinyang Maojian is produced in Xinyang County of the Henan province, and is widely regarded as one of China’s top ten teas with its distinct color and flavor. This lovely green tea opens up with a light grassy vegetal flavor, savory up front with a rich fried bean sweetness that lingers afterwards and then deepens in later steeps.
It’s a surprisingly bold taste for a green, and the dry leaves are long and thin, with downy silver buds in between This beautiful tea provides a superb retreat from the troubles of life or simply a moment of relaxation on a clear afternoon.
