Mao Feng Organic Green Tea comes from Zhejiang Province and is harvested at altitudes of 500 to 600m from the beginning of April. Its dark green, twisted leaf will surprise you in the cup with a fine fragrance and a colour reminiscent of fully ripe, bright lemons. Delicate and soft in flavour, but very aromatic.
Mao Feng Organic Green Tea is grown according to the principles of organic farming, which makes it a product of exceptional quality.

Place of origin
Zhejiang Province, China
This green tea has a very classic manufacturing process which, after an initial withering in the open air, involves cooking the leaves in large woks heated to temperatures of around 180°C to block enzyme activity and prevent oxidation. After these stages the leaves receive their characteristic flattened shape and are left to rest so that they lose some of the residual moisture inside.
Preparation of Mao Feng Organic Green Tea
We highly recommend infusing this tea in the traditional Chinese method (gong fu cha) to best enjoy these leaves. Following this preparation you can use 4.5 grams of leaves (about 3 teaspoons) in a gaiwan of about 100 ml to obtain several infusions with different tastes. After a quick rinse of the leaves in water at 80°C, you can proceed with an initial infusion of 10 seconds and then, keeping the water at the same temperature, proceed with multiple infusions, increasing the time each time by 5 seconds (10 – 15 – 20 …).
For a classic preparation according to the Western style we recommend 2 grams of leaves (approx. 1 teaspoon) in a 150 ml cup with water at 80°C for an infusion time of one and a half minutes.
The tea can be filtered for easier tasting and also the above brewing times are purely indicative so can be adjusted according to personal taste.
Store in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight.
