Premium green bud-tea from the Duyun area, Guizhou. The name, Maojian (毛尖) literally means hairy tip—when the buds and young leaves are plucked, they are covered with small, whitish hair. Read the full story of this remarkable tea in the blogpost on Duyun Maojian.
This tea embodies the idea of a perfect green tea. The first tiny buds were hand-picked before Qing Ming from an organic tea garden. The leaves’ high quality and the fineness of a hand-crafted tea leads to a tender primal character, followed by a long-lasting aftertaste.
