drank Yixing Mao Feng by Teatrade.sk
17 tasting notes

Visually very appealing dry leafs – small (approx. 5mm), rolled tightly into lightly curved sticks, color approx. 70% dark brown and 30% light brown.
Used boiling water, steeping time prolonged a bit with each infusion, started with 40 sec.
The infusion has a nice, clean, dark brown color. Smells a little bit flowery and like dark chocolate. In the taste you can also feel dark chocolate, flowery aroma and nice sweetness. Most of black teas are closing with a hint of bitterness, but this one is nice, clean and sweet.
Once the leafs fully unfold, you can see that it’s indeed made of young leafs, more or less the same size. Very good quality indeed.
The tea costs around 10 Euro for 50g, good price for such quality. If you think that’s expensive, you can still take the little bit cheaper Dai Ye Hong…very similar in taste, but Mao Feng is smoother. You get what you pay for :)
