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.

Organic

China has a rich and ancient tradition of producing high quality teas of all varieties, and black tea is no exception. This is where tea culture and industry, as we know it, began nearly 2,000 years ago.

Known as ‘Red Tea’ in China, the tea leaves from the Camellia sinensis sinensis plant are smaller and finer than their Indian counterparts, the Camellia sinensis assamica, and prefer cooler mountainous regions. Usually plucked by hand and gently processed, the end result are exquisitely fragrant teas with lesser levels of astringency and a soft body.

Several Chinese provinces are famous for their regional tea selections: Fujian Province is home to the well-known, pine-smoked Lapsang Souchong, while Keemun tea, the official choice of the British Queen, is produced in Anhui Province. Yunnan province produces the ever-popular varieties of Yunnan black tea and is also the region where China started its tea cultivation.

The organic teas we import are artisanally farmed and crafted. They may change with each harvest season. The same tea harvested at a different time of year and processed by a different tea maker will vary slightly in flavour and finish.
