“I’m not sure why this is, but in scanning reviews of several Mao Feng green teas on Steepster, I have noticed that impressions of them tend to be all over the map. Just to reiterate, I do not get...” Read full tasting note

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!

First Flush of Spring! Very tender and tippy with vibrant umami and sweet that will soothe and stimulate!

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: Mid-February 2017
