Su Mao Feng (素毛峰, Sù Máo Fēng, “Plain Hairy Peak”) is ubiquitous in Sichuan’s capital city of Chengdu. It is enjoyed in homes, offices, and in Chengdu’s dozens of riverside open-air tea houses, where it is second on the tea menu after Zhú Yè Qīng. Visiting friends or relatives are usually served the more expensive Zhú Yè Qīng, but locals prefer to drink Sù Máo Fēng for its full, robust flavor and bright green liquor. It is made of the leaves and buds of the E’mei tea plants, and the downy appearance of the white buds against the green leaves gives it its name. Its flavor is rich, sweet, and grassy with a soft floral fragrance and luminous emerald infusion.
Jungle soup, humid forest grass, drop of lemon juice; jungle hermitage, warm rain. Full-bodied, beautifully simple.
This tea is not only gorgeous but has such a wonderful taste. It is so smooth and so fresh. The look and taste of this tea speaks for itself on the high quality of this tea. I highly recommend!
