Gu Zhang Mao Jian green tea translates as “Sky Between the Branches”. It’s a type of Mao Jian tea, sometimes called Hairy Tips or Jade Tips. This tea is harvested in early spring, before the rains, when the leaves are most tender, young and fresh. The dry leaves are dark green and silvery and change to bright fresh green when steeped to give a bright, fresh, aromatic green tea!
