More About Xinyang Maojian:

The origin of Xinyang Maojian?

During the Tang Dynasty, the development of tea production began to enter a prosperous period. Xinyang has become a famous tea area, and the quality of the tea produced is high, and Xinyang Maojian is no exception. In the early years of the Republic of China, with the rapid development of processing technology, the production process of Maojian was gradually improved and perfected. Xinyang Tea District produces local Maojian tea, officially named "Xinyang Maojian". In 1915, at the Panama International Exposition, Xinyang Maojian won the gold medal.
Xinyang Maojian has always been ranked among the top ten famous teas in the country.

Where is Xinyang?
Xinyang, which belongs to the upper reaches of the Huaihe River, is located in the southernmost part of Henan Province and the northern part of the Jiangbei tea area in my country. As a tea-producing area in the north, the growth cycle is long, and the picking time will be slightly later than that of southern green tea. Here the mountains are ups and downs, the vegetation is rich, the rainfall is abundant, the clouds and mists are filled, and the air is humid. Tea gardens are distributed at an altitude of about 200 meters. Although the altitude is not high, it is located at the geographical boundary between the north and the south. The temperature difference between day and night is large, which is very conducive to the growth of tea trees.

How does Xinyang Maojian taste?

The quality of this Xinyang Maojian has improved a lot compared to last year. For high-quality delicate green tea, it is more suitable to use the "up-casting method" (add water first and then tea) for brewing. The tea leaves sink under water, which is very beautiful.
Although it is a bud and a leaf, it is a bud and a leaf blooming in the early spring.

 

What does Mingqian(明前) First Picking Means in China?
The spring harvesting of tea is also divided into three stages, which are
Ming Qian tea (tea leaves picked before April 5) 明前;
Rain Qian tea (tea leaves picked before April 20) 雨前;
and Spring Tail tea (tea leaves picked at the end of May) 春尾:
Among them, Ming Qian tea is the most valuable, after the tea tree has been dormant for a whole winter, the first tea bud that grows in spring is the fattest, the richest in substance, with light fragrance.

순수하고 깨끗한 맛의 차입니다.

몽정감로, 서호용정, 신양모첨 3종의 차를 구매해 마셔보았는데 아무래도 세 가지 녹차 중에서는 중량당 가격이 있는 데 비해 개성이 약한 편입니다. 하지만 단순하고 스트레잇한 깨끗함이 있어 마실 수록 정감이 가는 면이 있습니다. 마신 뒤의 단맛, 여운도 괜찮고요. 틴을 따면 내부는 밀봉이 되어 있지 않기 때문에 틴을 딴 뒤엔 빨리 소분하는 것이 좋습니다.
