I don’t recall that I’ve had too many Mao Fengs before so I thought I’d give this one a whirl.
Steeped with a regular infuser mug method, very slender and long attractive leaves which are nice. Wet leaves are quite vegetal smelling.
My cup yielded a very light olive colored tea with a slightly vegetal aroma. This tea is most likely a bit too mild for my tastes. I find myself wondering (like I do with dragonwell tea) where is the flavor?
This is light bodied, with a bit of sweetness and some fruitiness. A bit of apple, a bit of nuttiness. Slightly vegetal in taste. Eh, I don’t know what more to say about it. It is certainly drinkable and a quality tea, but does not thrill me. Someone who likes lighter Chinese teas should check into it. :)
