While listening to Butterfly by Jason Mraz I’m totally digging this tea. It’s more involved than other White Peony’s I have tried…Maybe even more vegetal, too! I really like this tho! It’s a nice, full white! Smooth end sip! Very nice!
Lightly oxidised tie guan yin oolong. Aroma is sweet and slightly floral, with very little vegetal or green tones.
Hugely sweet and sticky fruit (apricot?), particularly on first infusion. Crisp grape at the start quickly gives way to a syrupy middle and finish. Typical tie guan yin flavours are present throughout, but very refined with no harshness and lots of depth to the flavour. Honey and slight fruit in the aftertaste. Very satisfying and easy drinking.
First let me say I DO like this tea – it’s tasty. But I, personally, wouldn’t call it robust. I found it to be a bit on the lighter side…it’s mellow yet airy and crisp. It’s a very gentle Keemun. I think that is why I like it…it’s different. It’s always nice to have a soothing black tea in your back pocket, ya know??
It’s a bit sweet and I really like the sweet notes!
Good, orthodox Keemun red. Sweet, crisp with some floral notes. Honey on finish.
Very complex. Slightly roasty, very sweet & sticky aroma on leaves. Fruit start – notes of pear & stoned fruit. Viscous but clean middle, hint of spice (allspice?). Soft finish, with a hint of astringency. Subdued but complex aftertaste.
Very light and gentle as high grade green should be.
Dont expect explosion of taste from this one but it fills me with energy with every cup.
I use it as reference and compare all other Mao Fengs with this one :)
Still my number one.
Unfortunately, and hopefully due to my sniffle/sore throat, I’m not getting any flavour beyond hot water from a rather hearty steeping of this one.
I don’t know how I haven’t logged this one yet, but I guess I was concentrating on finishing up the Jungpana first flush I still had from DT. So delicious. Delicate but with so much personality!
Oh, yum. So fresh and re-freshing! This is incredibly light; it looks almost just like water in my cup. It’s gentle and sweet, with a lightly floral aftertaste.
No notes yet. Add one?
I think I am officially over ordering tea from the US, for the most part. I’ve found great options from the UK, and I cannot get over the difference in shipping cost. Also, I placed my order on May 29 around noon (i.e. end of working day in the UK), and I just received it on June 2. This is blowing my mind.
Anyway, on to the tea itself. This has plenty of green in it, though less than the Jungpana. The dry leaf smells quite like hay. The liquor is nice and gold-amber, and yum! This is definitely less green-tasting than the Jungpana and with a bit more body. Deliciously smooth and sweet.
