Fresh From Origin
The Mao Feng style of green tea is known for its layer of white down or "Mao" along the young buds. Unlike some other Chinese green teas, Meng Ding Mao Feng is not pan fried, but rather undergoes steaming. Because of this unique processing its profile is closer to Japanese green teas. Steaming gives the tea a crisper flavor profile, making it one of the most uniquely flavored Chinese green teas.

How long have you been growing tea and what got your started?
I have worked with tea for more than 30 years. I was born in a tea farming family. I followed my parents to work with tea when I was a little girl. So, when I grew up I become a tea farmer as well.
Can you describe a typical day out in the field?
I have to get up very early at 6 in the morning. I need to climb the mountains during the morning. I take rest at noon. Normally I will finish my plucking around 2pm in the afternoon.
What is your favorite part of growing tea?
I love the beautiful tea trees all over the mountains. It looks like a beautiful drawing. I love plucking. Sometimes I am singing while plucking.
Conversely, what is the hardest part of your job?
I have to climb mountains every day. My feet are not going well now. Sometime I feel uncomfortable when I am climbing. But I don't want to stop working like this.
Are there any tips you can give on how to best brew your tea?
Please use a glass cup to brew our beautiful mao feng. The temperature of hot water should be 80 degrees.
