MAO JIAN TEA
This tea has a history of more than 2300 years of production in the mountainous Xinyang area of China. It is famous, ancient, and wildly popular as a relaxing tea to enjoy after a long day. The tea trees are planted at high altitudes where they can experience all four reasons and abundant rainfall. These factors contribute to rich and fertile soil composition to produce high quality green tea. The traditional harvest season for Mao Jian tea is in spring and fall, and this lot was harvested in mid-April 2022 which is an earlier picking period before the solar term. These leaves are highly coveted and particularly known for being fresh, rare, and of excellent quality in this season.
