Xinyang Maojian is one of China's most famous green teas. This green tea is covered with soft white hairs. When brewed, the liquor of the tea has very bright and vibrant green. Each tea leaf is hand-picked and very labor-intensive.

Xinyang Maojian has a unique rounded thin shape that looks like a green needle. The color is emerald green with a fresh fragrance and a clean, sweet, and mellow flavor.

Where Does Xinyang Maojian Come From?

This type of tea is from Xinyang city in Henan province, which is located in central China. The city has a long history of tea production and is well-known for its high-quality teas. The climate in this region is warm and humid with plenty of rainfall, which creates the ideal conditions for growing tea leaves.


How Is Xinyang Maojian Made?

The leaves of this tea are picked by hand in early spring when they are young and tender. Once the leaves are picked, they are then steamed to stop the oxidation process. After that, the leaves are rolled into their iconic needle shape. Once the leaves are rolled, they are dried in pans over low heat until they turn a yellow-green color.

If you're looking for a high-quality green tea with a unique flavor profile, look no further than Xinyang Maojian! This delicious Chinese green tea is perfect for those who enjoy fresh, fragrant teas with a clean, sweet taste.
