A local Mao Feng cultivar, it is farmed & processed to local custom. It is not often found in the U.S. in this style and flavor. TMG is an exceptional choice for those that enjoy a strong and full-bodied Chinese green. Handpicked, single origin and traditionally fired in bamboo baskets, TMG offers beautiful, long leaves that offer a slightly fruity taste with light, natural sweetness. An unusual tea embodies regional characteristics in coloration, leaf size, and taste. This is one of the strongest tasting green teas we offer. Harvested early April 2023.
Lot Notes. TMG is fired in bamboo baskets using traditional processing methods. It is fired at high temperature giving it a stronger body and accentuating its sweet side. We found a subtle, fruity note at the finish of this tea.
Tea Facts. The origins of this green tea are found in the WuYi Mountains of Fujian Province. Harvested typically when the leaves have grown larger (mid-to-late April) and its early sping flavors are strong.
Tasting Notes. This is a strong green with hints of fruit. There is a light, natural sweetness to be enjoyed. Aroma is strong and vegetal.
Brewing Suggestions. Three grams (teaspoon) is our recommendation for 6-8 ounces of water. Use a water temperature from 185-205 F. This will bring up its sweet notes quickly. Steep briefly for 2 minutes and taste. The tea can steep longer for added body.
