Organic Mao Jian from LeafSpa

October18

Tea Information:

Leaf Type:  Green

Where to Buy:  LeafSpa

Company Description:

A nice Mao Jian leaf that steeps a lovely green liquor filled with the vegetal notes that make China green teas famous. The sweet finish and well balance mouth feel add to the delight found in this fine tea. A very rare find in readily available organic green teas.

Taster’s Review:

This tea is so good.  I believe that this tea could convert many of the “non-green-tea” drinkers out there.  Yes, it really is that good.

The dry leaf does not really possess a very strong aroma; however, the brewed tea is pleasantly fragrant.  It is a little bit vegetative, a little bit floral.

The flavor is absolute deliciousness.  It has a velvet-y mouthfeel that takes me a little by surprise because it resembles an Oolong mouthfeel rather than a green tea mouthfeel.  It’s very smooth and lush.  Nice!

This tea does possess a vegetative quality, but I wouldn’t call it grassy.  It is more like lightly buttered vegetables.  Not a strong vegetable taste like spinach.  Something a little more subtle, like maybe a sweet winter squash… but not quite.  The tea finishes with a delectable sweet and tangy note.

But the best part of the tea is its amazing sweetness without tasting sugary or too sweet.  It just tastes perfect.

Truly, one of the best green teas I’ve ever tasted.  The only thing that would make it better is if it were organic.  Oh… wait a minute!  It IS organic!  Yep… perfect!

Our mutual love for tea and writing about it inspired us to start this blog so that we could better share this love with others.

One thing I (Anne) learned very early on in my career as a tea artist is that everyone has different preferences, and every single tea tastes differently on every single palate.  So just because one of us doesn’t happen to like a tea, doesn’t mean that YOU (the reader) will not.

We try to be as impartial as we can.  We do have our favorites.  We are human.  But we do our very best to be as fair and as honest about a tea as we can be.

You might not agree with my assessment – or with Jennifer’s assessment – of a tea.  But that’s OK… if we all liked the same exact tea – we’d only need ONE kind of tea and … wow… that sounds really boring, indeed!

What a beautiful world it is that we have so many teas to suit so many tea enthusiasts!
