Mao Feng translates to "Fur Peak". It has small white hairs which cover the leaves and the shape of the processed leaves resemble the peak of a mountain. When picking the tea, only the new tea buds and the leaf next to the bud are picked. The tea has a roasted aroma and a light floral overtone.
Put 3 grams of tea leaves in a small glass pitcher aka, fairness cup or chahai, and then fill with 6 ounces of 170 F temperature water.
Steep about 2 minutes before straining, allowing some water to stay in the glass with the leaves and brew a second time when ready.
