Description: The words Mao Feng are used to describe a higher quality of tea. It translates to ‘Fur Peak,’ and refers to the specific pluck, which consists of a single young leaf and soft bud. A dark, sweet aroma of brown sugar precedes this mildly astringent steep, which pinches gently and fades. Builds to a lovely full-flavoured cup with hints of roasted peach. Lingering notes of pipe tobacco and cinnamon remain on the tongue. A very accessible pure tea.
Tasting Notes: The cup begins with a smoky and sweet aroma. Notes of ripe peach lead to a lovely full flavour of dark cinnamon on the palate. The tea finishes with a gentle astringency.
Brewing Instructions: 2g per cup. 100ºC water. steep 3-5 minutes.
