STORYarticle-shape

The misty, cloudy climate of the mountainous Xinyang area of Henan Province, China produces this popular green tea. This tea was harvested in late April 2022, both grown and hand processed in small batches by Duan and his family. Mao Jian literally translates to "hair tips", referring to the fine furry appearance of the inner side of the tea leaf. Enjoy a fresh floral aroma with a subtle umami aftertaste in the cup.

Duan’s Family Farm Duan grew up on tea farms and has been involved with tea growing & production for his entire life. He is one of the most prolific & enthusiastic tea producers, and our sourcing partner has worked with him for over a decade.

Through the years, Duan has pioneered many organic farming initiatives, curated his own small production facility, and forged partnerships with producers and farmers all around Henan, China. Today, he owns several of his own tea gardens.

Duan handles the entire exclusive production of this mao jian tea in his very own production facility. Each batch is produced in very small quantities, and Duan’s entire family is involved in the processing from start to finish. They are incredibly passionate about preparing unique, artisanal teas.

We love that Duan is always experimenting, constantly finding new ways to produce teas, all by hand. He is always extremely excited to share new teas that he’s working on and is beyond grateful for the opportunity to get his artistic handiwork out to the world!

MAO JIAN TEA This tea has a history of more than 2300 years of production in the mountainous Xinyang area of China. It is famous, ancient, and wildly popular as a relaxing tea to enjoy after a long day. The tea trees are planted at high altitudes where they can experience all four reasons and abundant rainfall. These factors contribute to rich and fertile soil composition to produce high quality green tea. The traditional harvest season for Mao Jian tea is in spring and fall, and this lot was harvested in mid-April 2022 which is an earlier picking period before the solar term. These leaves are highly coveted and particularly known for being fresh, rare, and of excellent quality in this season.

ABOUT THE SACHETS The pyramid tea sachets are designed to give the tea leaves ample room to unfurl & expand as they steep. These sachets are made from PLA Mesh (NeoSoilon®) material that is derived from 100% non-GMO sugar cane. Each sachet is pre-dosed so you can enjoy a great cup of tea at your convenience.

MORE COFFEES FROM THIS ROASTER

It was some years ago that we Jon and Andrea, began to dream of serving a sweet, black cup of coffee to our customers in Arkansas. This coffee, the mythical bridge between the blended chocolate drink and a strong black cup, needed to combine the delicate flavors only present when coffee is grown and processed with love and care, roasted to enhance but not mask flavor, and brewed to highlight those flavors. This is how Onyx Coffee Lab was born in October of 2012.

Our mission is pretty simple: to source and serve the best coffees in the world. Perhaps this is really ambitious, but we believe it’s pretty simple. Customers want to taste differences in coffee, not only on the black coffee level, but also when espresso and milk are poured together, and on another level, when coffee is treated as a culinary item and paired with beverages and food items that you wouldn’t expect.

The best business practice that Onyx Coffee Lab has and strives to continue is to be an owner-driven business. The difference between an owner run café, restaurant, roaster, retail shop, and so on is almost always evident in customer service, quality of product and atmosphere. It’s no easy task to translate passion for award winning coffee into a well-run business. We think it’s a carefully constructed balance of demand for excellence, passion, heart, and recognizing when we need someone to step into a leadership role. Every cup of freshly roasted coffee from Onyx has been carefully curated by us- from the very beginning with the farmer, through the roastery and to our customers. Without all of those hands, we are nothing, and we are there over each step in the process, demanding, sipping, loving, encouraging, instructing. We are Onyx Coffee Lab.
