Mountain Tips, Xinyang Maojian, Spring 2019
Xinyang Maojian is a famous green tea produced in the Henan province of China. This tea is harvested in the early spring and is comprised of tiny, highly aromatic leaves. The aroma is stunning, comparable to a summer morning walk through a deciduous forest with hints of pine and sweet wild grasses. The flavor is super sweet and full, coating the mouth with rich umami and evergreen, lingering on for quite some time after the tea is done. Hands down one of my favorites!
