The treasure from the wild in Yellow mountain in An Hui province, harvested in early Spring. Wu Xi Shan meaning 5 streams mountain, it's one of the mountain peaks in the yellow mountain range, 1100 meters above sea level, far from main roads, pristine condition is the fundamental for great teas! Super crisp, pure and nourishing!
Mao Jian is a higher grade from Mao Feng, younger sprouts without open leaves in the picking.
The floral aroma of the super fine small buds are out of this world, wild orchid fragrance in the deep valley after the first Spring rain kinda lovely, pronounce yet elegant! Exceptional green tea!
Wild tea trees are untempered by the human and without city pollution. The taste is pure, crisp and refreshing, unlike tea garden teas. The energy, Qi in Chinese term is very present and soothing.
A great green tea requires hot temperature water.
Use 3 g for a normal coffee mug size cup, off boil water approximately 209 F. Best result with Kungfu style brewing with either a teapot or gaiwan.
Recommended water for all teas: very good quality filtered water, ie reverse osmosis filtered water. Spring water suppresses the fragrance quite a bit. Tap water is prohibited!
