Mao Feng is picked as one leaf and one bud and is covered in downy hairs. The taste is more mild than the "Zhen Mei" with more floral and fruit notes. The after-taste and feeling is protracted and pleasant!
The buds are picked in early February and then sun-dried. The flavor is fresh and a little fruity somewhat similiar to a good white tea but more complex flavors. The brewed liquor is whitish and clear, and there is a hint of fresh pine needles in the aroma!
