From Yunnan Sourcing

Mao Feng green tea is from Yunnan "large leaf" varietal tea tree. Unlike other green teas it is not rolled and the leaves and buds stay largely unbroken. The flavor is bold and nutty but if not over-brewed is smooth and satisfying. This is the highest grade Yunnan Mao Feng available!




The taste is green and vegetal, with notes of green chestnut and fresh flowers. Sweet aftertaste and nice mouth watering effect!




Small Batch Hand-Processed
Large Hairy Silver Buds
Super clear tea soup!





Harvest Area: Yin Pan Mountain of Simao
Harvest time: Early March 2015

Incredibly fragrant, smooth, uplifting, flowery, and fruity. This is the first Yunnan green I’ve tried and I’m quite impressed. Immediately, upon opening the bag I was hit with an intense peach fragrance. The brewed leaves are light green and smell like intensely sweet smelling flowers. The aroma itself is almost intoxicating.

The fruity flavor, aftertaste, and velvety texture is indicative to the tea varietals unique to Yunnan. To me, it’s closer to high-end white tea in texture and flavor, while maintaining that crisp freshness, reminding the drinker that it’s still a green tea and must be consumed quickly. As I take my time enjoying the tea, I notice the warming-calming energy/effects (cha qi?) of the tea moving from my nose and mouth, down my throat and spreading throughout my body. It’s extremely relaxing. I drink greens daily, but this is a first.

I poured hot (but not boiling) water into a cha hai (tea brewing beaker) and yielded 4 tasty steeps. I may edit this tasting note later as I try different brewing techniques, but so far I say this is a stellar tea.

Thanks Ubacat for sending me a sample!

Honestly, this is a pretty typcal, non-descript tea for me. I’m not a huge fan of Mao Fengs, I’ve found, and I’ve also found that I’m not a fan of Yunnan greens, so having this tea be both wouldn’t be my ideal. It’s not offensive or awful, but it’s kind of middle-of-the-road green for me. This tea has that sort of smoke/rubber note I get on the back of my tongue a lot when I drink Yunnan greens.

Brewed this tea this morning Western style and it tastes pretty weak. I think I need to come up with different brewing parameters for this tea. It smells delicious dry but when brewed it’s a barely there chestnut flavor. Maybe that’s how it should be or it might be because it’s such a new tea. It’s really fluffy too like white tea. I did put more than 1 tbsp. in to compensate for it being a fluffy tea.

I just can’t rate this tea right now until I give it a bit more time and different brewing techniques. Right now though, it’s not one of the greens I love. Just too weak.
