From TeaSource

This mao jian style tea from Hunan Province in China brews up light, smooth, sweet, with a very refreshing taste. It makes a great all-day-long tea and a marvelous introduction to straight green teas.

A review of House Green by Tea Source

Company: Tea Source
Tea Name: House Green
Tea Type/Varietal: Green
Region: China
Steeping Vessel/Amt. Leaf: cup/ loose leaf
Liquor Color: light green
Leaf Characteristics: leaves are fuller when steep and smells very green/broccoli like; so very yummy aroma.


1st Steeping:
Water temperature: 190 Fahrenheit
Time: 3 minutes

I am enjoying sampling of these green teas and this is by far the best of the teas that I have sampled. After steeping the tea for a few minutes the tea’s aroma is so green and yummy/veggie like of steam broccoli. Tea’s color is lightly green and when I sip of the tea it is very nice and cleanly refreshing.

I don’t find it to be astringent but good for me kind of tea. So I sip and sip until done and fix myself another cup of the tea using same tea leaves.

2nd Steeping:
Water temperature: 195 Fahrenheit
Time: 2 minutes

Note: With this next steep tea is very mild and again I must say there does not seem to be any astringency. It is a freshly aromatic tea smelling very much of greens and pleasantly sweet aroma. Overall this tea is smooth, cleanly with no after taste. I find that I like this tea best in what I have sampled to date. Thank you to the folks at An International Tea Moment for sending me these samples to enjoy and experience.

I had a very different impression of this tea than that in the other tasting note. I don’t taste the vegetal/broccoli note—which for me is a good thing. I did find it astringent, even bitter, and I steeped it at a lower temperature than the other reviewer, at 160 F, the low end of what was recommended, rather than 190, which is the temperature more for an oolong or Darjeeling. But really, a higher temperature and longer steeping time should make it more bitter, not less. It’s drinkable, and my aunt liked it, but among the several green teas I’ve tried from TeaSource, thjs is no favorite and not one I’d order again. Among their unflavored Green Teas I prefer Houjicha, Iccha Kariban , Clouds and Mist and Pi Lo Chun Imperial.
