From Yunnan Sourcing

This lovely high mountain green tea from Wu Liang mountain of Simao is Certified Organic (JN Organic Certification)! “Mao Feng” is a high grade of Yunnan Large Leaf varietal green tea that is picked when just a few days old. Mao Feng is picked as one leaf and one bud and is covered in downy hairs. The taste is more mild than the “Zhen Mei” with more floral and fruit notes. The after-taste and feeling is protracted and pleasant!

We recommend brewing with 85-90C water with short infusion times (10s, 15s, 20s, 30s).

Spring 2014 harvest!

Lewis and Clark TTB #14

I didn’t know what to expect from this tea. YS is famous for pu-erh, and this dry tea looked a bit like a young sheng. However, it tastes pretty much like mao feng, with rich vegetive flavors. Unfortunately for me, I’m not particularly wild about this style of tea. For those who are, this is well-made, smooth and flavorful, with a long finish.

I’ll withhold a score, since I don’t like the style.

This is it, folks! This is the very last sample I took from the TTB before sending it on its merry way. I’m not sure why I haven’t tried this one sooner, it’s been hanging out next to the dreaded Da Yu Ling Oolong sample that is finally gone. Anyway, on to the good bits! The leaves are long and fairly thin, and tightly twisted. Color is a lighter shade of grey/green. The outside bag smells like Hot Lips, oops! Luckily the tea inside didn’t seem to be contaminated, and smells lightly sweet with mild vegetal notes. I steeped mine for 1.5 minutes because I felt like it (seriously).

I think I may have underleafed or understeeped this one, as I’m not getting a ton of aroma. What I do smell is a bit of mineral quality combined with mild and sweet vegetal notes.

Confession: I totally let this tea cool a ton, mostly because I was looking through boychik’s cupboard with my mouth wide open… Seriously tempting things in there! Ahem! Anyway, yeah this is definitely underleafed. I do like the flavor that’s there, and it reminds me of the Bi Luo Chun that I got from Han Xiang on AliExpress. It has an interesting mineral/smoke note to it that I enjoy, along with strong apricot notes near the beginning. Overall, very nice, even underleafed! :D

I oversteeped my first infusion of this. Oops. Work is distracting and crazy busy as of late. But I could tell this tea has a lot of potential.

I resteeped the leaves for a couple more infusions, short and sweet this time, not getting distracted. Much better. Mild, fruity, almost floral.
