From Yunnan Sourcing

This Yunnan Mao Jian is a hybrid of northern small leaf Mao Jian and Yunnan large-leaf assamica. This particular tea is grown in Ning’Er county of Simao and was picked in late February.

This is entirely a pure bud pluck and the dry leaf is very tippy and downy. The leaves have been rolled to “break the mass” and are spindled in appearance. Processing style is typical of green tea, so the aroma when brewed is incredibly full and textured! The taste is sweet, with a little green tea umami to counter that floral sweetness. First flush of spring tea!

I ordered the 2018 version of this tea and today is the last sip of it. I haven’t been extremely impressed with this tea but it being early spring tea (back in March); it was great to have any kind of fresh green tea then. It has a bit of hay flavour that reminds me of a white tea. The leaves are downy like a white tea too. Brews up very mild with a slight corn sweetness. I tried brewing this longer to get a darker brew and it tasted something like a puerh then. If this tea came available when all of the better green teas are out I probably wouldn’t buy it at all. It’s not a bad tea at all but just not my “cup of tea”.
