drank Hunan Mao Jian by Harney & Sons
18 tasting notes

Let me start off by saying thank you JacquelineM for the box of tea I got today! I’m so excited, I don’t know where to start! But I was brewing another pot of Hunan as it came in, so let’s see where it takes me.

Alright, let’s try this again. I added less leaves, and only let it steep for about 2:30. I’m also enjoying a bowl of ramen pasta (pour the water out, use different seasonings, SO much better and better for you!) with sauteed mushrooms, so I can see how it is with a meal.

Wow. This is really good with food. The vegetable flavor is still there, but it goes down smooth and kind of refreshes your palate after taking a bite. I also now detect a sweet note in the back of my tongue. This might grow on me as a lunch tea!

Well I’m still fairly new to the nuances of finer teas, but I’m trying to learn fast!
