Xinyang Maojian green tea is regarded as one of China's top ten teas. Throughout the country, it is drunk after a day of hard work or for relaxation during the hot summer months as it is picked in the spring.
This green tea comes from Dong Jia He in Henan Province where it was originally cultivated over 100 years ago and still grown to this day. The high mountains which are covered in snow for most of the winter, with their robust forests, are a perfect environment for this tea to grow and develop its rich sweet, vegetal flavor and roasted aroma.
At first sip you'll be surprised by its potent flavor. This tea is perfect for those looking for an alternative green tea option as it is like no other.
