The infusion is a very pale golden color, very enticing. The smell has a salty vegetal-ness to it almost reminding me of edamame. The taste is delicious – surprisingly savory for a Chinese green tea. It takes a few sips for this to really develop (at least using the brewing parameters I did), but it is fantastic once it does. Although I am a vegetarian nowadays, I would imagine that this would pair well with chicken or turkey.

Been awhile since I’ve cupped a Mao Feng. Last one was a Keemun type. Before that, a couple of years since my last Mao Feng green. This was a crisp, wonderfully vegetal (but not spinachy) and creamy green with a pine note somewhere in the mix. I could easily draw comparison to pre-rain Long Jings as a flavor-sibling. Quite decent.
