Our organic Huangshan Maofeng tea comes from Xiuning County, which is one of the nationally renowned organic teas producing county in China. The plucking of this tea is carried out at Ming Qian period in early spring when the tea buds were very tender and rich in nutrients. Only the one bud and one leaf or one bud with two leaves is allowed to be hand-plucked for making this tea. The plucking and processing procedures were completed in the same day. The finished tea leaves are fine and straight and have combined not only yellowish green color, but also strong fragrance. It has delightful fresh aroma and can give you a comfortable smooth, sweet drinking feeling rolling over the tongue without any bitterness.

Gong Fu Sipdown (552)!

Finished this one off earlier this afternoon; it was a really nice session. Basically I just popped on some Beatles music, grabbed some paper to take notes and just tuned out. You can check out some photos on my instagram here:

Otherwise, the following is just what I wrote down with each infusion…

Steep One – 5 Seconds
– Buttery vegetal aroma
- Grass notes, buttered green beans, romaine lettuce
- Bok Choy???
- Lots of flavor for a first infusion

Steep Two – 5 Seconds
- Same as prior but sharper/grassier
- Has a very soft bitter aftertaste

Steep Three – 10 Seconds
- Fennel top notes
- Sweet undertones
- Still quite buttery (lettuce/romaine/green beans)
- Less bitter than the previous steep

Steep Four – 15 Seconds
- Yellower tint to liquor colour
- Ditto to steep three, but smoother overall
- Cleaner finish

_Steep Five – 18 Seconds
- Flavour deterioration, in particular with vegetal elements
- But still bean-y
- Also has a peachyness to it
- And the finish is less clean, more lingering

Steep Six – 25 Seconds
- Meh; kind of bored with this one
- Flavor is also a little more flat
- No more buttery element, but more peach

And that’s where I left things. I know I could have done more, and honestly I did really enjoy the session – the problem for me is that as much as I enjoyed this overall it is a green tea, and even a good green tea is one that I grow sick of SO quickly. Six infusions was plenty for me; any more than that and I think I would have started resenting the tea/its profile.

Hmmm…first to review…

Thanks again to Angel at Teavivre for these free samples.

The leaves are long and flat. The dry tea smells of cabbage and sea salt. The brewed tea scent is very strong cabbage, with a hint of sour notes. Not sour in a bad way, but sour as in delicious sour cabbage.

I made this one as an iced tea as it is super hot here today. I brewed a cup as normal and just poured into a water bottle filled with ice.

This is a delicious green tea. It is very smooth, slightly creamy. I think all the ice watered down what would have been a thick feeling liquor. There is no astringency. It is really not that cabbage-y tasting at all. It is definitely more of a vegetal tasting green tea versus a seaweed tasting green tea. There is a very slight sweetness to tea but also a slight bit of saltiness. Not enough to for it to make you feel more thirsty but just enough to make the flavours pop. It was very refreshing. I think this was much better than drinking ice water today.

New favourite green tea.
