Despite its colorful and awkward name, Hairy Crab “Mao Xie” is part of the family of teas that are grown in the Fujian, Anxi province. Like most Anxi teas, Hairy Crab has a fragrant aroma and flavor, with hints of jasmine and apple pears, followed with a smooth vegetal finish, and finishes with little astringency.
Origin: Fujian, Anxi
We recommend using Chinese Yixing (purple clay) or porcelain tea ware. Rinse tea cup and teapot with hot water. Fill the teapot 1/4 to 1/3 full with tea leaves, or 2 grams of tea leaves for every 150ml of water if you are not using Yixing teapot. Steep tea leaves in hot water at 100°c (212°F) for 1 minute for the first and second brewing. Gradually increase steeping time for subsequent brewing.
