From Harney & Sons

Located in central Zhejiang Province, this garden makes this special tea only for a few weeks before switching to its main export tea: Gunpowder. Organic Dao Ren Mao Feng is a fine and flavorful organic tea.

Experience buying from Harney & Sons http://steepster.com/places/2779-harney-and-sons-online-millerton-new-york

Age of leaf: from memory: reasonably fresh lot #, bought in later summer 2011, brewed up a month or two after I got it.

Packaging: In a sealed silver bag inside one of their standard tins.

Appearance and aroma of dry leaf: Similar in appearance to Teavana’s Three Kingdoms Mao Feng, but smaller leaves; standard green tea aroma with some other interesting smell I could not pin down.

Brewing guidelines: Glass Bodum pot with metal infuser/plunger. Stevia added.
……….1st: 173; 1’
……….2nd: 178; 1.5’
……….3rd: 182; 2’
……….4th: 185; 2.5’

Color and aroma of tea liquor: Golden yellow; mild sweet aroma.

Flavor of tea liquor: good, sweet flavor, with little to no astringency. Not much flavor on the third and forth steepings.

Appearance and aroma of wet leaf: Dark green, chopped leaves with a number of brown stems/twigs, but otherwise decent looking; fresh vegetal aroma.

Blends well with: I bet this tea would blend very well with just about any other green tea (it blended reasonably well with a few flavored greens I had).

Value: No longer on their website, but it was about $3/oz; not a great price for this tea, but not too bad, either.

Overall: I just finished the last of this today (to make room for all of the new tea I recently bought). I enjoyed this tea. Although I have never seen the likes of the brown twigs in the leaf, the flavor was good. It is definitely a solid green tea.
