premium-maojian

 Mao Jian refers to the plucking standard of this tea, one bud, that is both hairy (mao), straight, and pointy (jian). The shape of these leaves form the shape of a bird's beak. Many teas are produced in the Mao Jian style. Our Maojian is plucked in the earliest days of the harvest and handmade in this distinct shape, capturing the light & sweet vegetal notes of an early spring green-.

Regarded as one of China's top ten teas it has been well-known since the late Qing Dynasty (1644-1911).  It is distinct amongst other green teas, with its leaves having a darker color and it is has a stronger, more robust flavour.  Widely drunk in China during hot weather or after work, it is great when you're thirsty and need a refreshing, relaxing tea to drink.
