One of the most famous green teas in China, Maofeng 毛峰 - literally "fur peak" - is traditionally composed of needle-shaped leaves, that shine of dark and precious shades of green, embellished by the silver hues of young gems. The tender buds, covered in white fur, give the leaves a great freshness, that lasts at the bottom of the teacup.

Just like our Curly Maofeng, this traditional version is characterised by a great vegetal aroma, which gets sweeter with each infusion, acquiring creamy and mellow hints of butter. However, it also releases a hidden note of sage, that gives a balsamic twist.
The complexity of flavours that characterises this tea is typical of Sichuan terroir, here presented in a precious harvest.
