The Tea Spot is introducing today the newest selection to their growing line of loose organic tea – Mao Jian Jade Tips, a limited production spring harvest Chinese green tea. Light but distinctive in flavor, it also looks unique with its rolled, thin twisted leaves. Mao Jian green tea is produced in small quantities from a single annual harvest in Henan Province, China. The tea leaves are picked from trees grown in a high mountain area, which supports a strongly humid microclimate. Mao Jian Jade Tips organic green tea has a sweet vegetal aroma, with a refreshing bamboo flavor and finish. The thin silver-green leaves brew up into a light green-gold color. In addition to providing antioxidants, Mao Jian Jade Tips is also rich in selenium and zinc. Over two thousand years of tea history, Mao Jian green tea has been considered one of the ten most famous teas in China.
The Tea Spot’s CMO, Jessica Kochik, states, “The well-balanced flavor profile of this single-origin green tea uniquely complements the array of greens in our organic tea collection, bridging the sweet grassiness of Sencha and the light smokiness of Clouds and Mist – with a richness of buttered artichoke hearts. We can’t get enough of it in the office, where we cold brew it daily to make the most refreshing green iced tea. It’s a definite crowd-pleaser, which is why we’re so excited to offer this new green tea to our retail and wholesale customers.”
This is the second organic tea The Tea Spot has introduced in 2013. The Tea Spot now offers fifteen certified organic loose leaf teas, ranging from the darkest Pu’erh teas to a red South African Rooibos.
