From Silk Road Teas

The taste of this tea is reminiscent of nectar with a rich finish and a lingering sweet aftertaste. Silk Road Teas was the first U.S. tea company to offer this tea. In China, it is called Mei Lan Chun. The plant varietal, known as Mei Zhan, is slow-growing and produces a small harvest. It is easy to brew and does not become bitter with over steeping. The tea is at its best with water temperature well below boiling at 185 – 195 degrees and the leaves will offer multiple infusions.

Ever since seeing the excellent documentary “All In This Tea,” I’ve wanted to try this one and I finally got the chance when a local Chinese friend of mine brought some in to my shoppe for blending. During the aforementioned documentary film, renown tea master Gaetano Kazuo Maida does a public tasting of this specfic tea and describes the experience as “vegetal without being flowery, earthy, seaweed.” Well, he’s got a much more refined palate than I do but I get what he was saying. It’s definitely very, very vegetal and has a slight, natural sweetness to it that is refreshing. I’ve never tasted a tea so clean before. I got three lovely infusions out of the amount that was given and we’re getting together this weekend for more tastings.

Heard David Lee Hoffman on Sunday at the Rocky Mountain Tea Festival in Boulder. At least 12 Pu’er’s were served and a few Oolongs. We chatted a bit since we’re both older and went to the same University (San Jose State).

He get’s up your way I’m sure.

The best green tea I’ve ever tried. Rich and satisfying, but, being a green tea, it’s also light and refreshing. I tried to get as many steeps as possible from the batch I ordered (2010 season), but found the flavors dissipating in the fourth infusion. Next time I’ll try brewing this in a gaiwan. Fingers crossed that the price will come down for the 2012 season!

I was expecting a bit more considering its price, to be absolutely honest. I’ll try making it a bit stronger next time around, this is a very light leaf after all.

I did have to play with the temperature and timing a bit to get it just right. Remember not to steep it for more then one and a half minutes, otherwise it will taste like lima beans.

Sweet melon taste and a complexity that is beautiful.

Possibly the best tea i’ve ever had. Has a subtle hint of cinnamon or some other delicious spice. Could drink every day, all day, forever.

An amazing green tea to say the least. Once steeped, hints of cinnamon are given off as well as a sweet haylike aroma. So far, no other green tea i’ve had is as complex and full as this one. Definitely one of the best green teas around.
