Our Xinyang Maojian green tea is chosen from the origin place in Xinyang country of the more northern Henan province, Dabie Mountains District. This area has high, steep forest covered mountains that guarantee a humid cloudy growing season needed for high quality tea. However compared to the more southern provinces, Henan is colder and the mountains are usually snow covered in winter. This leads to a distinctive tea bush, with smaller, more robust leaves.
Our spring picked Xinyang Maojian green tea is produced in Xinyang county, Henan province, and is regarded as one of China's top ten teas. It is distinct amongst other green teas, with its leaves having a darker color and it is having 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.
