50g Guizhou Maojian +50g Duyun Maojian + 50g Cold Beauty

50g of Guizhou Maojian 1 Bud 1 Leaf Wild Green Tea from 90-100 Year Old Tea Trees 

For a bit more assertive flavor, this tea's picking standard is 1 bud and 1 leaf and still holds the name Guizhou mao jian. Mao jian translates to furry tip as each bud has tiny soft white fur on it. Skillful hand processing retains this nutrient rich fur/down which adds an interesting turbidity to the brewed tea. Do you want even more good news? This tea comes from wild green tea trees that are between 90-100 years old, which is extraordinarily rare for green tea. Trees that old produce far more interesting flavor, fragrance and antioxidant molecules than young, cultivated trees could ever imagine. Make sure to use 175F/80C water--never use boiling water--for brewing and you will get a superior green tea carrying the fragrance of seaweed paper, pine needles and floral fruit. The flavor is of roasted chestnuts and light seaweed paper without delivering any bitterness or astringency.

50g Duyun Maojian Green Tea

As spring just starts to break tea trees are busy producing their finest quality buds. The cold, foggy weather makes the buds grow very slowly giving them time to fill with the highest concentration of flavor and nutrient molecules of the year.
Those buds alone make it into our favorite green tea—Duyun maojian. Maojian translates to furry tip as each bud has tiny soft white fur on it. Skillful hand processing retains this nutrient rich fur which adds an interesting turbidity to the brewed tea. Make sure to use 175F/80C water-never use boiling water--for brewing and you will get a superior green tea carrying the fragrance of cinnamon, pine needles and floral fruit. The flavor is of roasted chestnuts and light cinnamon without delivering any bitterness or astringency. This family farm has 2 strengths of this tea based on growing terroir, trees and processing techniques. So if you like a milder green tea this is the one for you.
