Mao Cha is a large-leaf Pu Erh Sheng from Yunnan with apricot mineral and vegetal notes. It is harvested in the spring along the Da Xue Shan mountain, from local tea plants.
This tea is a dark tea: it can grow over a long period without deteriorating. Traditional Chinese medicine ascribes several qualities to dark tea: stimulating digestion, cleansing the body and clearing the effects of alcohol. This tea can be enjoyed as often as you like! In order to bring out all the aromatic complexity of this tea, we recommend multiple infusions using the traditional Chinese Gong Fu Cha method.
