Aptly named, this smooth, bright green tea provides a pleasant light flavor that parts with a lingering sweetness. The infused leaf shows the care that is taken to preserve the two small leaves that are hand-picked for you.
Insider Tip: Mao Feng roughly translates 'downy summit' and refers to the light pressure applied when rolling the leaf. For best results, use filtered water and measure your tea by weight. We offer digital scales in-store - let us know if you need one!

Green teas are unoxidized and processed by withering or wilting, followed by pan-firing or steaming, then a shaping process. During the shaping processes, further drying takes place, giving each green tea a distinct shape, character, and flavor. Often shaped by hand in places like China or Vietnam, the skill to craft these teas is passed down from generation to generation. In Japan, most of the tea processing is done mechanically, using machines and conveyor belts to steam, shape, and cool the teas.
