Imperial Xinyang Mao Jian 
Green tea, China


Artichoke, cooked spinach, roasted chestnut ~ light-bodied
Xinyang Mao Jian is one of the most famous teas in China and has been crafted in Henan province for thousands of years. Mao Jian means ‘furry tips’.

This imperial grade tea is the first flush of Spring 2021, harvested in late March from Qinling Mountain, Xinyang township.

These stunning leaves infuse into a sweet, savoury and umami tea with vegetal aromas of roasted chestnut, artichoke, cooked spinach and seaweed, which evolve with each steep. Light bodied, refreshing and moreish.

Preparation: Steep for 3 minutes at 85°. Three infusions.
