How to steep Xin Yang Mao Jian Green Tea?

This loose tea should preferably be steeped using glass or porcelain teaware. See in this video how we prepare this Xinyang Maojian in a porcelain gaiwan cup.

Xin Yang Mao Jian Tea Region

Xin Yang Mao Jian is a type of green tea native to Henan Province in central China. The tea gardens are scattered across the mountainous regions with an average altitude of 500 to 800 meters. Every winter, when the mountains are covered by snow, while most other plants have withered, Xin Yang Mao Jian tea trees still firmly withstand the harsh weather, gaining it the reputation of one of China’s toughest teas.

What are the health benefits of Xin Yang Mao Jian?

Benefits for regular consumption of Xin Yang Mao Jian and other loose green teas include a reduced risk for heart disease. The antioxidants in green teas can help block the oxidation of LDL (bad) cholesterol, increase HDL (good) cholesterol and improve artery function. A Chinese study published recently in the Archives of Internal Medicine showed a 46-65% reduction in hypertension risk in regular consumers of green tea, compared to non-consumers of tea.

Beautiful tea
I know the minute I opened the package that this was a remarkable tea. The dry leaf gives off an amazingly sweet fragrance. Still experimenting with brewing parameters, but I got a beautiful cup at 179f, 2 minutes. Very highly recommended! Review by Raceto (Posted on 5/16/2017)
Very Nice!
Steep 1- 1min
MMMMM, very nice reminds me of a Dragonwell in some ways.
Very tasty just a slight bitter , quite vegetal with a little herbaceous, grassy notes. There is smokiness up front that kinda reminds me of the smokiness in a Raw Puerh. It also has some slight nutty notes and the finish is a bit sweeter.

Steep 2- 1min 30 sec
A little stronger on this steep, vegetal still about the same, few differences the Smokiness is a little I dunno woodsy or earthy this time maybe, much more like the smokey notes of a sheng, and the finish is a bit sweeter still with some bitter twang.

Steep 3- 2min
Nah,I don’t think it was very good for a 3rd steep was good but surely faded.
It still has flavor mainly just the smokey note still with some vegetal, too weak now to even be bitter with a faint sweet aftertaste thats not as lingering as earlier.

Great Tea!
