This is as much of a confession as a review. I went nuts back in November 2013 with a huge order from Upton tea. I’m still drinking down that order, to the extent that i just opened this tea in May 2016. The amazing thing is that the tea is still very good!

The dry aroma from the bag was really pleasant. in the cup, the tea smells of citrus fruit and melon. the taste is similar but with a bitter undercurrent that detracts a bit from the taste. The finish is long and pleasant, with the fruit easily dominating just a hint of bitterness. i’m not going to give this a numerical rating since i have no idea what it tasted like when it went on sale. All I can say is that it is still very good.

I’m drinking this as part of the “week of tea exploration” suggested by Lion. Good idea Lion!

Sweet, green, golden, musty, complex.

Depending on the part of the mouth it touches and length of time there this tea shows a lot of different aspects in taste.

Most basic review: when I took my first drink I paused and thought how good it was and how interesting. Liked it right away.

My order just came in! Decided to brew a cuppa of this Mao Feng and I was completely surprised. I’ve had some Bai Mudan and indulged with Silver Needle in the past but this tea was a first. Mao Feng did not disappoint, the sweet nectar aftertaste is my favorite. I’m sure this is one I’ll be ordering again.

The taste reminds me of a green tea, like an oolong. But the color is white. Fruity strawberry notes at the end.
