I don’t recall that I’ve had too many Mao Fengs before so I thought I’d give this one a whirl.

Steeped with a regular infuser mug method, very slender and long attractive leaves which are nice. Wet leaves are quite vegetal smelling.

My cup yielded a very light olive colored tea with a slightly vegetal aroma. This tea is most likely a bit too mild for my tastes. I find myself wondering (like I do with dragonwell tea) where is the flavor?

This is light bodied, with a bit of sweetness and some fruitiness. A bit of apple, a bit of nuttiness. Slightly vegetal in taste. Eh, I don’t know what more to say about it. It is certainly drinkable and a quality tea, but does not thrill me. Someone who likes lighter Chinese teas should check into it. :)

I am a fan of many different teas but my favorites are blacks and oolongs, chai, also like darjeeling and pu-erh. I’n always learning and expanding my horizons!

Dislikes include: bergamot, jasmine, highly tannic or bitter teas, overly judgmental and bitter people. :)

Live in San Francisco, I’m a SINK (single income, no kids) and love the urban life, but traveling out to the middle of nowhere is always fun too.

I tend to not drink things I know I will hate so a lot of my tea ratings are on the higher side. Here’s my rating system, sorta

95-100 I love this tea and would like to keep it around

94-90 An excellent tea which I may or may not repurchase

89-80 Pretty good, above average

79-70 Acceptable

69-60 Mundane – Will probably drink it if I have it

59-50 Ick

49 and below Nasty
