Mao Xie, pronounced Mao (like Chairman Mao) Shea (like NY Met's stadium). This is grown in Anxi, Fujian Province where mostly Tie Guan Yin (Iron Goddess of Mercy) is 90% popular, and only four teas are really known on this mountain. It is called Hairy Crab in North America, because of the shape of the rolled leaf pellet. It's a light oxidized oolong, closer to a green tea. For brewing, use a level teaspoon of tea for each 8oz of 190 degree water (less than boiling). Brew 2 to 3 minutes, and this can be re-infused about 3 times or more, increasing brew time 30 secs to 1 min. A family member of the tea master spent some time with us during our trip to Anxi, and later we saw him at the International Tea Fair. He always carried this tea with him, then gifted it to Eileen since she like it so much. Of course we ended up buying more when we returned home.
