Description:Mao Jian literally means "hairy tips" referring to the appearance of the tea leaves. The processed leaves are in fine, taut strips. They make a delicious tea with a chestnut flavor and a long-lasting aftertaste.
This tea has been produced with only very simple equipment. What make it different are the skillful hand movements of rolling, adjusted to the heat and softness or dryness of the tender leaves. The brewed tea is pale-gold in colour and has a grassy fragrance with a sweet, long lasting aftertaste.Full bodied tea with distinct floral aroma with a hint of cool minty note. Very refreshing aftertaste. Truly the finest quality of Jun Shan Mao Jian.
Brewing Guide: Jun Shan Mao Jian may be prepared in a standard full-sized teapot, but for best results we recommend using a gaiwan (traditional covered steeping cup). Preheat the gaiwan with hot water and fill with 1-2 teaspoons of leaf. Cover with relatively cool water [60-65C (140-149F)] and infuse for 1 or 3 minutes, adjust time, temperature, and quantity according to your personal preference. To serve, pour into a pitcher or directly into warmed tasting cups and enjoy. Mao Jian may be reinfused several times by gradually increasing steeping time and water temperature.
