I brewed this basket style. When I lifted the lid after a minute the aroma was very nice. I should of stopped the steeping there. It was light and complex as it was described. My friend from Anhui had a pound sent over that I miss. This was good. It was a sample from Upton that I will not be buying….
I used up the rest of this sample in the Gaiwan. I was very generous with the amount of leaf and I had an extended steep time. It is a very light tea. It also appeared the leaves may have been on the older side of green tea. One note I must make is that I thought it made me feel very nice. I personally know this tea from having a pound of it fresh from China because my GF is from Anhui the home of Mao Feng.
