Fur tip tea

Mao Jian is produced among the misty mountains of Zhejiang, Anhui and Henan provinces and literally translates as ‘hairy tip’ or ‘fur tip’. It is regarded as the best variety in the white tea category.


It is usually grown at altitudes between 500 an 800 meters, benefitting from classic mountain mists. As it is situated relatively far north there is a distinctive seasonality and comparatively short growing season, with the best crop usually coming around the middle of April during the spring period.

This is from Zhejiang and has a bright fresh, clean and rounded character that is refreshing and suits any mood at any time of the day.

It is called Mao Jian or Fur Tip because it was picked while the leaves were still enclosed in their furry casings, before they unfurled and started manufacturing chlorophyll and caffeine.
