A fine green tea with a soft and sweet flavour
Mao Feng is a fine quality green tea, harvested in late springtime. It is sometimes called Criss-Cross Tea due to its wild, unruly leaf shape (and certainly not because of any celebrity endorsements). Even though Mao Feng is a premium quality tea, it is also perfect for green tea beginners. It may be a pure leaf, but the flavour is so sweet and aromatic for a green tea that you could be forgiven for thinking it had been scented with something or other.
Mao Feng is produced under the shadow of ‘Nine-Dragon Mountain’ in east China’s Zhejiang province. I don’t think there are dragons there any more, but you might run into some rare and fearsome pheasants, which live on these hills and almost nowhere else.
