Mao Jian Hunan Green Tea
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 is from the Hunan province of eastern China. The leaf is small, wiry and green with a slight curve, almost like an eyebrow. When brewed, the liquor is light and bright with a beautifully delicate floral flavour. It is most sought-after owing to these qualities, and many, many more.
This tea also has a very high ranking in the world of Tea. Not only is it of the utmost quality, but also has some of the greatest health-promoting potentials of any Tea. In fact, when consumed as part of a healthy and active lifestyle, Mao Jian Hunan Green Tea can boost the metabolism, which helps the body to burn fat quicker and more efficiently.
Furthermore, studies have suggested that the frequent consumption of any Green Tea, including Mao Jian Hunan Green Tea, can potentially (although not yet proven) reduce the risks of developing certain types of cancer. It would appear that the possibilities of Mao Jian Hunan Green Tea are next to endless; however, for those who are less interested in the health benefits of Tea and more interested in its taste, this wholesome, flavoursome, awesome beverage is everything you’d hope for and more.
The province of Hunan, home to this beverage, plays a significant role in China’s Tea Industry. It neighbours the Guangxi province to the southwest, the Guizhou province to the west, the Hubei province to the north and the Jiangxi province to the east. It is a landlocked province on the southern bank of the Yangtze river, noted as being very mountainous, which is why most Hunan-grown Teas are high-grown.
The climate is warm and temperate, which also contributes greatly to the quality of Hunan-grown Teas such as Mao Jian Hunan Green Tea. Hunan province is the second largest producer of loose leaf Tea in China. Some of the most famous Teas from Hunan are Junshan Yinzhen (silver needles), Dark Black Brick Tea, Huang Ya (a yellow Tea) and, of course, our very own Mao Jian Hunan Green Tea. Many of these Teas are grown in equally famous Hunan Tea-growing areas, which include Dongting Lake, Heng Mountain and Shao Mountain. Teas from these areas tend to be of exceptional quality, with Mao Jian Hunan Green Tea being no exception. In our opinion, it is one of the best Green Teas from China.
