From The Tea Spot

A phenomenal single-origin, organic green tea from northern China – this Mao Jian is smooth, rich, and absolutely lovely. It’s grown in high-altitude cloud forests where the unique microclimate keeps the soil highly fertile. The dark green tippy leaves are twisted into thin pointed spindles that unfurl in your cup, revealing delicate young tea buds. These jade tips steep into a vibrant green infusion with notes of artichoke hearts and buttery Chardonnay, imparting a richness best described as umami.

When I tasted the tea this morning it blew me away, it was just awesome good and extremely refreshing, the tastes that I got before of green beans or peas was omg so delicious and it had natural sweetness with a slight “smokey?” hint to it and honestly I still can’t find the words to describe the taste or experience of it because I just don’t know how to put it in words, sorry, I am going to attempt to describe the best I can and maybe somebody knows what I’m talking about, this may sound really weird but when I was young we used to eat corn from the garden straight off of the stalk and munch on raw green beans and other things, the taste of these foods like that was very fresh and delicious to me and I enjoyed it very much WELL for some reason THAT is what comes to mind when drinking this tea cold brewed, I’m NOT saying that this one taste just like eating these things BUT there is “something” about the taste and flavor of this Tea that brings about the memory of eating such tasty things like that straight form the garden. Vegetal?? maybe it was vegetal to me but not like some other green teas.
