Brew with water at 75 to 80 degrees and brew for 2 to 3 minutes, be careful not to over infuse
Mao Jian Hunan Green Tea comes from Hunan province, China. Though the production of Mao Jian Tea first took place in Henan, not Hunan, it has since spread to other provinces. It consists of a small, wiry green leaf with a slight curve. Such is its unique appearance, in fact, that many call it "eyebrow Tea". When brewed, it has a delicately vegetal flavour.
This Tea, like most Green Teas, has extraordinary benefits when consumed as part of a healthy and active lifestyle. It can boost the metabolism of fat cells, aid digestion, improve cardiovascular health and reduce the risk of developing type-2 diabetes. Most people, however, choose to drink Mao Jian Hunan Green Tea because it tastes great. We pack it fresh to order.
Hunan Province and Tea
Hunan, a landlocked province on the southern bank of the Yangtze river, neighbours Guangxi to the southwest, Guizhou to the west, Hubei to the north and Jiangxi to the east. Its mountainous landscape and warm yet temperate climate ensure quality high-grown China Green Tea. Our Mao Jian Hunan Green Tea is, of course, no exception.
Hunan is the second largest producer of Loose Leaf Tea in China. Some of its most famous beverages include Hunshan Yinzhen (silver needles), Dark Black Brick Tea, Huang Ya (a type of Yellow Tea) and, indeed, Mao Jian Hunan Green Tea. While The Kent and Sussex Tea and Coffee Company stock many China Green Teas, this one is one of our personal favourites.
