From Yunnan Sourcing

Mao Feng green tea is from Yunnan “large leaf” varietal tea tree. Unlike other green teas it is not rolled and the leaves and buds stay largely unbroken. The flavor is bold and nutty but if not over-brewed is smooth and satisfying. Our Premium Mao Feng is bright green tea soup and has a lighter taste than our Fany Grade Mao Feng. This is the highest grade Yunnan Mao Feng available!

  • Small Batch Hand-Processed
  • Large Hairy Silver Buds
  • Super clear tea soup!

Harvest Area: Yin Pan Mountain of Simao
Harvest time: September 2012

My very first order from Yunnan Sourcing arrived, and among the enticing items was a big bag of Premium Mao Feng from 2012. The price was slashed—I presume because it is now two years old—but I am happy to report that the dried leaves are still extremely fragrant and beautiful, with tons of light and shadows produced by the impressive silver tips!

The liquor is pale peachy green and tastes smooth and satisfying—a fine example of this genre of tea and not old-tasting in the least!

Ubacat

So these teas can last way over a year if stored well. I don’t have to get panicky then when I can’t drink all my tea down fast enough!

Yes, Ubacat, in my experience, so long as the packages were hermetically sealed before you start drinking them, then they can last even longer. I would be wary of teas exposed to air for that long and would not recommend buying them.

SimpliciTEA

Glad to hear after two years this tea is still good.

What I have found with some green teas, is, yes, some are still able to yield good flavor after a year (or more). Yet, I have found on at least one green tea from YS—similar to or the same as this one—is that even if the first steeping is good, the second and third get bitter very easily; this can be somewhat managed by decreasing the steeping time.

This is a great fresh green tea. I am working on my fourth steeping today, and with a one minute 30 second steep the soup is a nice green. This tea is a bit dry, but not as dry as others I have.
