These leaves are beautiful. So long and slender and wiry. The color is so deeply green on these leaves that they almost appear black. A deep, forest-y green like the color of the evergreen forests here in the Pacific Northwest. Gorgeous!
The brewed tea is very light in color and has a very pleasing flavor. Mao Feng is one of my favorite green teas … quite simply because it tends to be very simple! It tastes like what I expect green tea to taste like. That isn’t to say that there isn’t a complexity to this cup – it certainly has many layers of enjoyable flavors – what I mean to say is that it doesn’t try to be anything that it is not. It is green tea, and that is what it tastes like.
It has a forward vegetative taste that tastes of sweet, broth-y vegetables – sort of like a comforting bowl of vegetable soup but without the chunks of vegetables! It isn’t really “grassy” … it is more like vegetables, but occasionally, I do get a distinctive tone that is more grassy to me than veggie.
When served hot, it becomes a very cozy, relaxing cup of tea. When served iced, it becomes a very refreshing, exhilarating drink. It is sweet and enjoyable served straight, but it also takes the addition of a thin slice of lemon quite nicely. A sprig of mint would also be agreeable.
This is one of those teas that I’d choose for an everyday green tea. A really enjoyable Mao Feng.
Anne started her journey with tea as a casual drinker and became more serious about her tea drinking when she realized that she couldn't drink coffee. Shortly thereafter, she started becoming obsessed with the beverage and she started creating small-batch, artisan blends of tea that she sold online as LiberTEAS. After a few years, she realized she wasn't cut out to be the sole proprietor of a business so she closed LiberTEAS and started reviewing teas online. She met Jennifer through another blog that they both reviewed for and they decided to start their own review blog. This review blog!
Throughout her journey as a tea reviewer, she discovered 52Teas and became enamored with the idea of creating a new tea every week. When the founder of 52Teas decided he wanted to move on, he offered the business to Anne but knowing that she wasn't cut out to be a sole proprietor, she instead offered the company to her oldest daughter who employs her as the Mad Tea Artist for 52Teas!
