A local Mao Feng cultivar, it is farmed & processed to local custom. TMG is an exceptional tea for those that enjoy a strong and full-bodied Chinese green tea. It is grown on small farms in the mountains of Fujian Province, west of Fuzhou. Handpicked, single origin and traditionally fired in bamboo baskets, TMG offers beautiful, long leaves that offer a slightly fruity taste with light, natural sweetness. An unusual tea embodies regional characteristics in coloration, leaf size and taste. This is one of the strongest tasting green teas we offer. Harvested early April 2023.
Lot Notes. TMG is fired in bamboo baskets using traditional processing methods. It is fired at high temperature giving it a stronger body and accentuating its sweet side. It has unique characteristics that can be enjoyed on an everyday basis as it is low cost and offers a range of fruit-like tastes.
Tasting Notes. This is a strong green with hints of fruit. There is a light, natural sweetness to be enjoyed. Aroma is strong and vegetal.
Brewing Suggestions. Three grams (teaspoon) is our recommendation for 6-8 ounces of water. Use a water temperature from 185-205 F. This will bring up its sweet notes quickly. Steep briefly for 2 minutes and taste. The tea can steep longer for added body.
