drank Weishan Mao Feng by Harney & Sons
1826 tasting notes

This is a free sample provided by Russel Allyn and Harney and Sons. Many thanks!

What can I say about this tea? It is a green tea but the liquor is paler than most of my white teas.
The aroma is buttered spinach.

I used city water to make this tea, but I swear it tastes like pure snow melt with spinach and a little dab of butter. It tastes as though the tea has cleansed the water to a purity not seen in ages. It has that high mineral note you get when you eat frost. (All you young folks – kids used to scrape and eat the fine frost that formed in freezers before they started making them frost free. Mom always told me it was going to kill me one day. LOL! I think food poisoning or something.)

I steeped it for the full three minutes in 170F water, and there is no trace or bitterness or astringency.

This cup is an escape. No more writing. Time to turn inward. Thank you, Russel and Harney and Sons!

Bio

I am a music teacher and homeschooling mom who started drinking loose leaf tea about five years ago! My daughters and I have tea every day, and we are frequently joined by my students or friends for “tea time.” Now my hubby joins us, too. His tastes have evolved from Tetley with milk and sugar to mostly unadorned greens and oolongs.

We have learned so much history, geography, and culture in this journey.

My avatar is a mole in a teacup! Long story…
