About: Our 2013 Supreme High Mountain Mao Jian is one of this year’s best green tea ever! Amazingly fresh and green, the colors of the tender tea leaves are deep and vibrant, and almost look like you just picked it off the garden last morning!

Being a true “High Mountain” green tea, the tea leaves were grown in Mt. Cheyun, in the Hennan province of China. Grown in the ideal warm climate, soil, and terroir, this green tea has a rich bright flavor, and conjures flavors of buttery Chinese Bok Choy and finishes off with a long and lingering, grassy, fresh, and mildly sweet tea aftertaste.

Health Benefits: Low in caffeine, super high in polyphenols—some claim as much as 30x more potent than vitamin C or E and 10x that of green tea, reduces blood pressure, reduces the formation of clots and is a formidable anti-cancer agent reducing the chance of DNA damage especially in the colon.

Several cups later I still love this tea. I have about one serving left and it is the last (unflavored) green tea in my cupboard. I’ve been trying so hard to earn my next tea shopping spree by using up what I have. Now I feel like I still have a full cupboard but nothing good to drink (kind of like the clothing in my closet, lol).

I have many teas that are just so-so and I’ve decided that I’m a princess and deserve only the best (haha). So I won’t drink them. Then, my husband has managed to accumulate a fair number of teas that only he likes, but he rarely drinks tea over coffee, so they sit around taking up my cupboard space, making me feel like I have more than I do. I periodically ask if he still wants to keep one or more of them and he always replies in the affirmative.

Part of my reason for earning the ‘right’ to shop for tea is so that I can justify spending money that I don’t have. As long as there is a sizable number in my cupboard, i can’t do it! boooo.
