Ya'an "Pine Needles" Mao Feng Green Tea from Sichuan
This is a lovely Ya'an Sichuan Green Tea! Grown in the high altitude tea gardens in the area of Meng Ding Shan. This unique Sichuan Mao Feng varietal is painstakingly processed and then "straightened" to look like pine needles!
The taste is fresh and sweet with some fruity character, and some umami astringency as well. The tea soup is a lovely green-yellow color!
Late-March into Early April harvested First Flush!
