From Seven Cups

Henan Province is the area furthest north for tea cultivation. Since the climate is colder, the harvest is later than other green teas, and the leaves are smaller. Our Xin Yang Mao Jian is for tea drinkers who enjoy a robust, rich taste with a lighter floral aroma. Tea makers achieve this by harvesting at the end of April with a standard picking of 1 bud to 2 leaves. Location: Xin Yang County, Henan Province
Tea Bush: Xin Yang Ben Shan Zhong (Xin Yang Region Mountain Bush)
Tea Master:
Harvest Time: end of April
Picking Standard: 1 bud to 1 or 2 tender leaves
Brewing vessel: glass cup, gaiwan, glass or porcelain pot,
Brewing Guidelines: 1st infusion 1/2 Tbs per 12 oz 180F for 2 min
Infusions: at least 3 times

I’m not very experienced with reviewing teas, but I’ll give it a go.

Over all, this tea is a perfect green tea. It has a very heavy presence, but the astringency stays politely in the background. I tend to let my teas over-brew, but even after 8 or so minutes the tea maintained a perfect flavour. I generally go for black teas and oolongs, but this tea will definitely stay in my cupboard for when I want something with a different flavour profile, but certainly not a lighter taste.
