From SpecialTeas

This superb, high quality Mao Feng is from the famous “Dao Ren Peak” in the mountains of the Zhejiang Province of China. This region is perpetually shrouded by clouds due to its high elevation and is named for the Taoist monks who meditated upon the mountain in ancient times. Carefully and lovingly, they tended to their tea garden, cultivating the precious tealeaves strictly for their own use. In time, they graciously began sharing their prized tea with the rest of the world.

The young, tippy tealeaves yield a golden cup, naturally sweet with a fruity, nutty aroma and a somewhat buttery character. It is a highly sought after green tea that is sure to delight the tea novice and connoisseur alike.

Recommendations: Use 2 heaping tsp. per 6 oz. cup; heat fresh, cold water until steaming (170°F); let steep for 2 min. Try a second infusion.

Ingredients: 100% Organic green tea

This tea is still good when steeped incorrectly.

I got this tea as part of my Fine Tea sampler from SpecialTeas. The label on the bag said it was a black tea to be steeped at a boil for three minutes. But I knew that was wierd even before I opened the bag. All the other little pouches seemed about half full with their 1 oz of tea. This was completely full of tea. And opening it, it seemed very… fluffy.

But I followed the directions and got some decent tea but it was REALLY light.

Then, thinking something was just wierd I checked the site. Oh hey look! It’s a green tea, to be brewed at 170, not boiling.

Facepalm.

But, the last cuppa wasn’t bad. This new cuppa on the second steep is better, and feels more right, but it’s nice to know this is a forgiving tea.

I’ll review and rate the tea as it’s meant to be enjoyed later. Right now I have to update my label on my jar!

You should let them know it was mislabeled.

wombatgirl

Just did. Thanks for the reminder.

Cofftea

Let us know what they said… I’d be interested in their reaction to a mistake like that.

wombatgirl

Quick answer – it was “Thank you for letting me know! I will let our labelers know. Have a wonderful day.”

Cofftea

Quick and kind answer- I like that:)

The scent is sweetly vegetal with notes of cooked carrots and roasted nuts and is thoroughly pleasant.

However, the tea’s flavor is much sharper and brighter than the aroma would purport creating an interesting though slightly off-putting contrast.

. . . not very complex, yet fresh and deceptively delicious in its duplicity. Tricky, indeed . . .

I have recently found that using less leaf cuts the sharpness and allows a honeysuckle flavor to come through.
