2023 Spring Moganshan Green Tea
What is Green Tea?
A timeless favorite, green tea is all about freshness! Unoxidized and bright, green tea is known for its light, clean taste, natural sweetness, enticing scent, and easy-drinking feel.
Moganshan Mountain is a famous retreat for the who's who of Shanghai that want to beat the heat from the city by getting up into the cool mountains. I get this tea direct from the tea farmers in the region!
Moganshan green tea is picked fresh each spring, processed, and refrigerated until packing, when it is sealed to keep in freshness. It is known for its sweet, slightly grassy taste that is makes it super easy-drinking. The leaves are whole and bright green.
It has a fresh, revitalizing fragrance that makes it fantastic for any season!
This year, we worked with our tea farmers to hand-process the tea, which will lead to a smaller, more curled leaf with even more fragrance.
The Perfect Summer Tea
While green tea can be consumed year-round, it is especially prized during summer, because of its lower, cooler steeping temperature and crisp, easy-drinking flavor.
And while it's not a traditional Chinese method, green tea makes for an excellent cold brew or iced tea!
Moganshan is back, at the request of all our tea drinkers!
The first ever green tea on the shop was the 2022 Moganshan Green. I expected that when 2023 came around, people would ask for new and different types of tea, but people loved the Moganshan so much that everyone insisted we get the new 2023 Spring crop as well!
This is a fantastic, balanced green tea that will definitely brighten your day.

VALUE AND QUALITY
Jesse's Teahouse started because Jesse realized the quality and value of the tea directly from China was so much higher than what could be easily found in the States -- and around the world.
Jesse contacted his tea friends, they shipped their best teas to him, and he sends them to you. That's it!
These teas are high quality and can be re-steeped multiple times! Each serving makes between 4-8 cups of tea, so at around $.50 a cup, you get top quality Chinese teas at a price that you can enjoy every day.
NOT JUST TEA, TEA CULTURE
Jesse believes the key to making good tea is to help his Chinese tea friends share not just their best teas, but the best ways to make the teas.
That's why each box comes also comes with an info card that tells you:
- Tea Origin
- Steep Temperature
- Steep Time
- Directions for both teapot steeping and gaiwan steeping
All Jesse’s Teahouse Tea Friends (that’s you now!) also get access to private YouTube videos where Jesse and his Chinese tea friends show you how to make the teas and explain the tea-making process.
The links are on QR codes on the back of the info card included in the tea box.
Don't Forget Your Tea Pets!
In Chinese Gongfu Tea Tradition, Tea Pets accompany you at teatime and you "raise" them by feeding them tea! Check out the tea pets at the bottom of this page.
