Aged Hong Mei Mao Feng


Zehijiang, China is an eastern coastal province with a humid, subtropical climate. One of the most famous tea producing regions in China, records of tea production date back as early as the Wei and Jin Dynasties, 1500 years ago.

Aged Hong Mei Mao Feng*:

Our Aged Hong Mei Mao Feng is an uncommon black tea from Zhejiang whose name loosely translates "Red Plum Flower Tip." Mao feng is the style of leaf that looks like a pointy blade, and this is the most delicate mao feng possible, consisting exclusively of a tip that is jet black and beautifully twisted into a long, thin, springy strand.

The unusually attractive appearance is the result of rolling the leaf by hand three times, with intervals in between to control oxidation. In the aged version of Hong Mei Mao Feng you'll notice a pronounced concentration of flavors and aroma that highlights this tea's unique preserved plum taste. An extraordinarily fragrant and robustly flavorful tea that connoisseurs savor.

A rich black tea with plum overtones, yet no infusion or blending to produce the fruity aftertaste.  Perfect for a winter's afternoon break.
