About Green Tip Tea (Xinyang Maojian) 2023
Xinyang Maojian is a well-known Chinese green tea produced in Xinyang City, Henan province. It is made using one bud with one, two or three leaves, according to the grade. The dry tea leaves are straight, thin and evenly shaped, and covered with abundant white fuzz.
Our Xingyang Maojian is Yuqian tea with high grade made from leaves picked before the Grain Rain (19, 20 or 21 April). Temperatures during this period are high, which causes the tea leaves to grow relatively fast; the leaves are also rich in accumulated substances. The taste is normally very fresh with a strong, invigorating aroma and a sweet lingering fragrance.
