Spring Tea, May – June: Come to the Mountains and Pick your Favorite Tea

Spring Tea, May – June: Come to the Mountains and Pick your Favorite Tea.

The leaves of the Tieguanyin tea plant are thick and rich, and when you infuse them with water, they burst with flavor. Swallow the liquid slowly and the taste lingers long in the mouth, a trait that locals call the "Guanyin Effect".

Tieguanyin is an aristocrat of tea and each year the Muzha District Farmers' Association holds a contest to choose the best of the year's crop of leaves. Come up into the mountains and enjoy the fun and the flavor of fresh tea at Maokong!
