Handrolled & hand-roasted Wild Maofeng Green Tea from Anhui, China. Harvest Spring 2019.
Wild plucked 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. Differently then the processing of traditional Maofeng the “Unloved & Wild” is hand-rolled to get our the flavor and break the enzymes.
The tea is made in a very small batch (<20kg), exclusive for us, hand picked and wild grown. Order it before we are out of stock.
