About Lincang Maofeng:

Grown in southwestern Yunnan province between Myanmar and the Lancang (Mekong) River, this Lincang Maofeng showcases a more savory side of green tea.

The leaves are plucked from a Da Ye (large leaf) varietal known for its strong yet smooth flavor and aroma. After plucking, the leaves are gently withered to reduce moisture and then pan-fired using a large wok. After firing, the leaves are rolled and then re-fired. This process is repeated several times until the correct shape, aroma, and residual moisture is achieved. Careful processing results in a unique blend of smoky and fresh flavors.

Ingredients: 100% Organic Green Tea Leaves.

Flavor Profile:

Honeyed aroma yields to flavors of black walnut, char, and artichoke.
