From Yunnan Sourcing

Mao Xie aka “Hairy Crab” is a type of Anxi oolong tea that grows in many places in Anxi county of Fujian. Mao Xie means literally “Hair of the Crab” and refers to the hairs on the tea leaves that break off when brewed and float on the top of your cup. Mao Xie has got a thicker and sweeter taste than its more floral counterpart Tie Guan Yin.

Our Mao Xie Oolong is the highest grade normally available.

Brewed Gong-fu, 185F. Rinse gives a wonderful floral smell- instant memories of walking through a greenhouse. First steep- leaves begin to open, smell deepens with rich grassy notes, maybe slightly like moss. Pale green liquor. Moderate sized leaves.
Flavor is nicely vegetal. Not as floral as other anxi oolongs i’ve had. Still summoning memories of green houses as well as walking through a wet forest, which is what I get with similar styles. Solid offering. This makes me think of farmer’s market produce, in that it just tastes like real plants that have been treated well.
This is the second tea I’ve tasted from yunnan sourcing and both were top notch. Looking forward to trying the rest of my shipment.
