Pretty sure this Huang Shan Mao Feng is my new favorite type of green tea. I also often enjoy a good dragonwell, but there is something about this one that is so good.

I think this is the first time that I’ve had a wide variety of different greens at the same time, and it has been interesting trying them. I think I have one pouch left of each green sample that Teavivre sent me, so I will be able to compare them all again, along with the Laoshan greens I now have through the Verdant Reserve Club.

Even though I used way too little leaf for this cup, I really do enjoy it a lot. It is less vegetal and grassy than some greens, and I love the chestnut flavors. Really quite good.

I gotta try that one next time from Teavivre!

I am tea obsessed, with the stash to match. I tend to really enjoy green oolongs, Chinese blacks, and flavored teas with high quality bases, especially florals, bergamot-based teas, and chocolate teas.

In my free time I am a birder, baker, and music/movie/tv addict.

Here are my rating categories, FYI:
100-90: Mind-blowingly good, just right for my palate, and teas that just take me to a happy place.
89-86: I really really like these teas and will keep most of them in the permanent collection, but they’re not quite as spectacular as the top category
85-80: Pretty tasty teas that I enjoy well enough, but definitely won’t rebuy when I run out.
79-70: Teas that I would probably drink again, but only if there were no preferrable options.
69-50: Teas that I don’t really enjoy all that much and wouldn’t drink another cup of.
49 and below: Mega yuck. This tea is just disgusting to me.
Unrated: Usually I feel unqualified to rate these teas because they are types of teas that I tend to not like in general. Sometimes user error or tea brewed under poor conditions.
