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. This is the highest grade Yunnan Mao Feng available!

The taste is green and vegetal, with notes of green chestnut and fresh flowers. Sweet aftertaste and nice mouth watering effect!

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

Harvest Area: Yin Pan Mountain of Simao
Harvest time: Late February 2014

Short review since im on my mobile excuse any typos or conversely auto correct edits, really sweet and vegital when cold brewed it produces a sweet smooth taste of a veggie medley, hot brewed it is unmistakably green peas and super sweet crisp green peas at that. Leaves and bud super high quality, some teas I actually do NOT prefer first flush or pre qing ming but this tea I believe is perfectly suited duenton its sweet light profile. If it last me until the summer I will look forward to making refreshing iced tea with maybe a squeeze of lemon.

This is a really excellent first flush spring green, super fresh, perfectly smooth, and deliciously sweet. The tea is very tippy (like 2/3 buds) and the dry appearance looks sort of like a Bai Mu Dan, but larger leafed and much much greener. It starts off light, thick, and smooth, with a crisp green sparkling sweetness a bit like a pre-ming dragonwell, and as the leaves unfold in later infusions more of the traditional yunnan green nuttiness comes out. It also seems to last forever, going on and on for way way more infusions than green tea has any right to, even compared to other yunnan greens. A really stunning super fresh spring green and ridiculously good value. The soft fuzzy sweetness that fills and coats the mouth lingers for hours long after the tea is gone.

I really liked this tea. Great for spring and summer

It’s so good, easily beats greens like 8x the price, these inexpensive yunnan greens make people shelling out for dragonwells and similar look like total chumps. The soft fuzzy sweetness from this fills and coats the mouth and lingers for an hour or more long after the tea is gone.

Agree. I’m glad I picked it . I think I told you I copied your order. Still waiting for my order fr China.
