This was the last of the Huang Shan Mao Feng from Red Blossom. I had about 5g left. Since the last bit of it had a lot of the tea dust and broken leaves I put the dry leaves into a strainer and gently shook off the small bits. I was left with about 3g of dry tea.

The aroma of the wet tea leaves was reminiscent of yuzu; a citrus fruit that’s woody and refreshing. There was also a bit of toasty-nuttiness to it.

The liquor was easily drunk. The flavour was subtle. I found the mouth feel to be juicy but slightly astringent. In fact the astringency was a very nice compliment to the juiciness.

I like this tea but I feel it’s a delicate brew to make. For me, its not an everyday tea but one that takes some time and dedication to appreciate.

Overall, I think it’s a good green tea. Even though my cup is empty the taste lingers on my tongue.
