LooseTman’s review made me realize it was time to open my batch of this Mao Feng.
Most of the time, I’ll have my green tea in a tall glass tumbler, a method I’ve learned from David Duckler at Verdant.
But today, I felt like using my little 5oz glass gaiwan, I love watching fluffy green tea through a small glass vessel, something whimsical about it.
I love green teas and have neglected them lately. I usually drink tons at this time of the year cause they are so fresh.
This tea tastes like sweet greens, spinach, asparagus. It’s very fragrant, its aroma is tantalizing.
I used 5g of tea, so I get lots of flavour here, with a certain level of astringency due to the amount of leaves maybe. It’s bright but not bitter.
This little tea has a lot to offer, strong body and character.
A nice floral mouthfeel develops with the later steeps.
The sweetness also intensifies as I’m sipping on steep #5.
This tea gave me an increasing amount of energy, I can see myself drinking lots of it in the morning.
Very good, not as enjoyable as Long Jing to me, I miss the buttery notes they provide, but it’s something I will definitely have again.
