Yunnan Green Mao Feng Growing Region: Pu-Erh (Formerly Simao) Prefecture, Yunnan Description: Mao Feng translates literally as “Downy Peak,” and it is one of China’s most famous green teas, coming from Yunnan "large leaf" varietal tea tree. Unlike other green teas it is not rolled and the leaves and buds stay largely unbroken. The flavor is bold and nutty but if not over-brewed is smooth and satisfying. This is the highest grade Yunnan Mao Feng available! The taste is green and vegetal, with notes of green chestnut and fresh flowers. Sweet aftertaste and nice mouth watering effect! The materials used to make this tea are a mixture of hand picked one leaf/one bud and two leaf/one bud complexes. The leaves are simply twisted during processing to preserve the whole leaves and buds. When steeped, the liquor of this tea is pale green in appearance, and it tastes very fresh, green, and a bit nutty/sweet. The flavor is more assertive than other green teas, but I find it to be extremely smooth and pleasant. Like other green teas, this one should be steeped at about 175 F (80 C) in order to avoid extracting astringent flavor compounds or scalding the leaves. If you are careful with water temperature it can be infused several times. Yunnan Mao Feng is perfectly suited for steeping in the western manner as well.
