drank Keemun Mao Feng by Harney & Sons
1798 tasting notes

This tea made its tea party debut today! My guest said it is a keeper, and it will be one of her favorites. It is mild but flavorful, smooth, and goes well with food or is very nice by itself. We took it sans additions.

Youngest daughter takes all her tea with milk and sugar and said she strongly prefers Hao Ya A to this one, but then she is an Irish Breakfast drinker! She likes somewhat gutsy teas.

For a tea to drink “as is” that has a bit of finesse, this one is a good choice. Hurray though, it is a rare tea with limited production and supplies run out. When that happens you just have to wait until next year’s harvest!

Bio

I am a music teacher and homeschooling mom who started drinking loose leaf tea about four 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.

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