Brewing instructions


Mao Jian Black Tea comes from Anhui province in China, although it was originally the product of neighbouring Henan. In fact, many examples of Mao Jian Teas exist in provinces across the country. The reason we chose this particular one, however, is due to its extraordinary quality.

It consists of twisted black leaves with golden tips which, when brewed, have a malty, buttery character. When consumed as part of a healthy and active lifestyle, it can even improve cardiovascular health and reduce the risk of developing type-2 diabetes. We pack it fresh to order.

Mao Jian Black Tea Health Benefits

Here's another fact for you: Mao Jian Black Tea can improve oral health. Research funded by the Tea Trade Health Research Association has suggested that it can reduce plaque formation as well as restrict bacterial growth. And they are not the only ones to say so, either.

A collaborative study conducted in conjunction with the College of Dentistry at the University of Iowa and the Institute of Odontology at Göteborg University in Sweden has long supported this idea. Better still, it comes with evidence!

The study found that the polyphenolic compounds present in all Types of Black Tea can kill or suppress cavity-causing bacteria from either growing or producing acid. It also affected the bacterial enzymes and prevented the formation of the sticky-like material that binds plaque to teeth. That'll put a smile on your face!
