Green Tranquility Maofeng is a popular “go-to” tea. A great green tea for an everyday cup with a classic China green tea flavor. The taste is vegetal but not grassy nor astringent.
The leaf style is a good example of a Maofeng and most “cloud and mist” teas. The term literally means “downy summit” and refers to a leaf style that is not too compact, as in Maojian or Hairpoint. The pressure used in making Maofengs is lighter and shorter in duration than in processing Hairpoint teas. Maofengs tend to be looser and have more “open” leaves. This tea is a step up from Gunpowder and Chunmee teas which are baked, rendering the cup more assertive, as can be seen from the orange or dark gold brews, where the Maofeng brews up a golden cup.
