信阳 – Xinyang
Xin Yang Mao Jian is one of the ten most sought after Chinese green teas.
It has a mellow, sweet taste with a pronounced green character. Notes of fresh grass, green bean and a hint of chestnut.
With its relatively high caffeine content it energizes the body and gently warms you up.
Xing Yang is a high-mountain, located in East-China; it has a long history of green tea production.
We brought two similar green teas from this region so that we can compare them — a really interesting experience.
Quantity: 5-6 gramm per 180ml.
