First yellow tea ever!
I definitely enjoyed it. It was super drinkable – it went away fast XD
It reminded me a bit of my Sweet Dew Gan Lu green tea but with less astringency.

“Hated this tea! I kept sipping and sipping, hoping I’d get used to it, but it never happened. Then the aftertaste made it even more awful!” Read full tasting note
Mo Gan Shan is a famous mountain near Hangzhou City in Zhejiang Province. In addition to this rare tea, this area is recognized for the creation of a famous Chinese sword “Mo Xie Gan Jiang” over 2,500 years ago. Only a few older countryside tea makers know how to make this complex tea. In fact, we were fortunate to special order this traditionally made tea during our recent trip to China. This high altitude tea grows in a remote forest area and picked early in the spring. Its favor is similar to green tea, but with a gentle, light floral aroma and mild sweet taste.
