This is a lovely, very well-made country green tea that is modest in price but long on flavor. It is back this year by popular demand and we we were fortunate to obtain a very tasty batch from the earliers Pre-Qing Ming pluck. We have increased our supply of it handsomely as we expect to gain new converts to this tea this year.

We were introduced to this tea at the Fang Cun tea market in Guangzhou and ordered it immediately. Sweet, refreshing and readily drinkable, this tea  become the everyday tea for many of our customers.

This mao jian pluck – the bud and one leaf -  is very elegant in appearance which makes for an easy-to-measure leaf that yields a very tasty cup with good clarity and sweet spring aroma. It has enough flavor in the cup to satisfy Western tea drinkers, yet has enough of the sweetness of spring tea to make it truly special.
