What is Xinyang Maojian Tea 

Xinyang Maojian is one type of green tea that originally was produced in mid-China. The name can be divided into two parts that are associated with two aspects: "Xinyang", the first part, is the Xinyang city in Henan, China that produces this type of tea; "Maojian" to depict the shape of the tea – "mao" means tiny fuzz in the cup when brewed, "Jian" refers to the shape of tea leaves: sharp, full young leaves.

Xinyang has a tea history dating back to 2300 years ago – in 1987, at Gushi County of Xinyang, tea was discovered in an ancient tomb. In the past century, Xinyang Maojian has been considered one of the 10 best teas in China. It has a wide market and popularity in Henan province, where people like to drink it as a relaxing beverage after a busy day. 

Tea Origin

Located in southern Henan Province, Xinyang is a place with a mild climate and good conditions for growing trees that produce the tea's unique quality: Xinyang tea trees are planted at high altitudes where the weather is clearly divided by four distinct seasons. Many high mountains, such as Mt. Cheyun, Mt. Jiyun, and Mt. Tianyun, surround the location in order to support environmental humidification and moisture. Moreover, the location is abundant with forests, clouds, rainfall, with large temperature differences between day and night. These geographical advantages help keep Xinyang's soil healthy and fertile, while trees more efficiently absorb chemical elements to produce higher quality green tea.

Tea Xinyang Maojian Features 

The appearance of the Maojian tea's leaves is commonly known as "hairy tips”, a name that refers to the leaves' slightly dark-green color, straight and delicate edges, and thin and firmly rolled appearance with both ends in a pointed shape. The regular length of a Xinyang Maojian tea leaf is about 0.5–1 inches. It also tends to form balls, releasing a rather pungent smell when stored for a long time. It needs air, or the lack of oxygen will release an odor, to make up for the lack of oxygen. Comparing it with other famous types of green tea, Maojian leaves are relatively small. After brewing Maojian and pouring the water into a teacup, the aroma will flow into the air and create a peaceful atmosphere.
