Xin Yang Mao Jian

Product code: CSTV-53

From tea bushes cultivated on the Xin Yang region's highest mountains, in the Chinese province of Henan, this renowned tea is produced from a fine harvest of delicate buds.

The smooth, cloudy liquor has a fruity and floral bouquet reminiscent of litchi. Upon tasting, this bright cup reveals its astringency, distinctness, and aromatic complexity. The floral and herbaceous notes run from toasted hazelnuts to straw, leaving a fresh miny finish.

A fortifying and generous tea.
