Green Mao Jian
Origin: Hunan Province
Our special organic Green Mao Jian Tea (毛尖花), is an unusual mountain-grown tea from western Hunan Province. The tea is named for the abundance of tiny hairs covering the leaves when they are picked in the spring and for the sharply pointed shape of the leaves once rolled in the finishing process.
Green Mao Jian Tea is one of the most delicate green teas we have seen. Steeped normally, it produces a lovely pale green brew with meadow notes and light forest scents. A stronger brew may be obtained using more tea leaves, warmer water and a longer steep time. Even then, this tea is not bitter. An excellent tea for those who want to enjoy a green tea without the punch that so many ordinary greens carry.
Our Green Mao Jian Tea is pure whole leaf organic Chinese tea, Fair Trade certified and sublimely drinkable. A marvelous tea to accompany you throughout a busy morning and into the early afternoon, a tea both for the dedicated tea consumer and one for the casual tea drinker as well.
Green Mao Jian is available by 2.5 oz tin or by the pound. Wondering if you'll like it? Try a taste! Tasting samples are available for all our teas and good for two cups.

Mellow and delicious. The perfect tea. Keeps me going all day!
This is my favorite of the green teas. It has a crisp clean flavor and is mild and delicious.
I love all of the Little Red Cup teas that I have tried, but this green tea just might be my favorite. Maybe it's just because it's what I am drinking right now, but it's great no matter what!
