It has an earthy, woodsy flavor that makes me think of Xin Yang Mao Jian: both of these teas possess a straightforward, minerally-backbone that is very pleasing, and a telltale clue to their western China origin. Du Yun Mao Jian is from Guizhou Province, a place of fascination and wonder that is populated by several of China’s colorful ethnic minority groups who are known for elaborate silver jewelry, embroidery and textile arts.
