Tea of March–Wild Maofeng Green Tea

Spring is such an exciting term. We finish the cold winter and come into the warm spring. Spring is always associated with hope, life and awakening. Everything is coming back to life.

Around this time of the year, our green tea farmers start to get busy in the tea field for the harvest of fresh tea leaf. Later these fresh leaves will be processed with care to produce green tea. Spring is a time of green tea which is the first tea in the year to give you the buzz.

As we are just about to enter spring, we would like to introduce you to this hand-picked Maofeng green tea from the wild tea plants. Her hometown is called Fengming village in Yaan City where Estelle comes from. The altitude of the tea field is about 800-1000 meters, perfect for the tea plantation. The farmers are kind and smiley people who are experts of green tea and yellow tea. The couple who run the tea factory is Estelle’s mum, Xiaoshan’s friends who always invite us for dinners and look after Xiaoshan.

It was a pure accident that we found them. Xiaoshan’s friend was looking for a good yellow tea supplier. She asked for help. Xiaoshan asked another friend who introduced the couple to Xiaoshan and her friend. Since then, we have been working closely with them and built a close friendship.

Wild Maofeng Green Tea

It has a fluffy look with all the tiny hair from the young buds. It’s full of flavours and aromas. Compared to other Maofeng green teas, this one is much fresher and sweeter with a baked-bean note. The gentle flavour slowly wakes up your tongue as you take your first sip. Notice the sensations on the different locations of your mouth and how it’s developing. The tea liquor is light and clean with all the tiny hair from the buds.

The way we prepare it is slightly different from other teas. We always fill up a serving jug with boiling water to cool down, then put the green tea in. It avoids burning the tea leaves.

You will be able to see how fresh the tea is once it’s opened up. The leaves can last for about 5 infusions.

It all starts at this time of the year. Give yourself a moment to enjoy the flavour from the wild trees.
