Wild plucked Maofeng Green Tea from Mr. Cheng in Anhui, China. It is called “unloved & wild” because the farmer only had it for his personal drinking – the Chinese tea market demands a very standardized and beautiful product – this tea while very naturally grown without any pesticides or fertilizer did not match this standard. The farmer called the tea his ugly tea – we loved the taste and it works great in a glas or as cold brew.
Unloved & Wild Maofeng, Green Tea, Anhui, China (Pre Order Spring 2019)
30g hand harvested & wild artisan tea – 10 servings á 3g, each serving two or more re-steeps, 40 cups
Try this wild picked very typical green tea of the type Maofeng from Anhui. Our tasting notes are earthy, full, smooth. We found this tea in a tiny farm, where the owner first refused to sell it to us – because according to Chinese standards it is an „ugly tea“. We thought we should give this tea some love because of its full flavor and beautiful origin and took it back to Europe.
The tea is made in a very small batch (<30kg), hand picked and wild grown. Order the 2019 Spring harvest.
