This is my first review on Steepster, and I am thrilled to be able to praise Little Red Cup’s Green Mao Jian. The smell of the leaves pre-stepping made me raise an eyebrow, which is something that doesn’t happen often for a picky palate like me. I was intrigued. Its aroma was of moist, almost mossy earth. The green notes hovered quietly behind darker, warmer ones. I usually lean toward extreme-bright-grassy-spinachy-greens, and to “milky” oolongs, but the liveliness and balance of this green-earth won me over. It is layered and textured. An excellent, full, satisfying tea. Thank you Little Red Cup!!
