drank Mao Xie by Verdant Tea
12 tasting notes

Received as tea of the month club, labeled “Traditional Mao Xie”. Smells really good, a bit like caramel and very toasted smelling, with a hint of sesame. Very very good smelling.

First steep was 2:00 min at 200F with 5g of tea for 8 ounces. Smells like autumn leaves that have been caramelized with sugar. It tastes good, but is very underwhelming. I feel like it needs to be 4 times as strong. Next brew I’m going to do half the water and see how it changes. I do like it though.

Second brew increased flavor a bit, but it still seems to be a one note tea. It is still good though. Four brews in and still very good.

Flavors: Autumn Leaf Pile, Burnt Sugar, Caramel

200 °F / 93 °C 2 min, 0 sec 5 g 8 OZ / 236 ML
