From The Tao of Tea

Rich, nutty, vegetal flavor and aroma that stays smooth, even with long steepings.

Lincang prefecture lies just to the north of Simao and Xishuangbanna in southwestern Yunnan province between Myanmar and the Lancang (Mekong) River. Yunnan is considered the birthplace of the Camellia Sinensis and is home to the largest array of tea plants in the world – 199 varietals.

Large Leaf Varietal
Yunnan is famous for its large leaf (‘Da Ye’) varietal teas. To make Lincang Maofeng a particular large leaf varietal was chosen for its beautiful leaf shape as well as its strong, yet smooth flavor and aroma.

Pan Firing
After plucking, the leaves are gently withered to reduce moisture and then pan-fired using a large wok. After firing, the leaves are rolled and then re-fired. This process is repeated several times until the correct shape, aroma and residual moisture is achieved.

The Lincang Maofeng tea from the Tao of Tea is one that I enjoy drinking in the morning. It’s my go-to tea when I can’t think of anything else I want to have. It has a light smokey flavor, but other than that it’s not particularly special. It’s like that pair of jeans that you wear when all of your others are dirty. It’s not bad at all, but it’s not a “favorite”.

This is a yummy pan-fired Mao Feng from Tao of Tea.Unsurprisingly, the quality is quite good. I’ve yet to bump into a mediocre (much less bad) tea from this purveyor. The flavor is slightly vegetal but also a bit nutty and sweet. The liquor has a somewhat viscous texture—not exactly silken but more like licorice root—except that the flavor is Mao Feng!

I am surprised by the middling ratings on this organic offering, as my first impression of Lincang Maofeng, only this afternoon, has been quite positive.

Nothing remarkable about this tea. It makes a great blending tea with other teas that I find too strong however.

This is surprisingly smoky to me, with a strong waft of tar and pitch on the back end of the tea. I almost want to say this was stored in a old Lapsang container, it has that same dry quality. However, I would be surprised if Tao did that. Otherwise, it does have some vegetal spinach-like character and heavy charcoal. Maybe not my favorite.
