Tai Cha is the name of a regional breed of tea plant from Shiqian, Guizhou. Like the Pu Er plants of Yunnan, Tai Cha trees can live for more than a thousand years. Tai Cha is green in the early spring and ripens to purple as the weather warms, and was traditionally used to make Guan Guan Cha, a rustic style of green and fermented tea reminiscent of pu er (except with smaller leaves, as Tai Cha is part of the small-leaf branch of the tea plant family). Maojian is a vernacular style of green tea, similar to other green teas named Maojian or Maofeng throughout China. It is a 2 leaf 1 bud pluck, resulting in a refreshing, robust tea with a delicate downy sweetness. The tai cha contributes a distinctive sandalwood-bamboo fragrance to this unique green tea.
