I just came in from a massive marathon of holiday shopping, and I can’t think of another tea that revitalizes me quite the same way as a sweet, lush green tea like this Mao Jian Green Tea from Little Red Cup Tea Co. There is something just so … enlivening about green tea that seems to re-energize my drained “batteries.”
Mao Jian is one of my favorite green teas, because it has a sweet, vegetal flavor that is very fresh tasting but without a bitter grassy taste. This is more like a young, spring-green grass note that evokes thoughts of the dew that might form on the grass early in the spring mornings in a grassy field. There is a slightly savory quality to this cup as well that hits just after mid-sip. Savory … yes. Bitter? No.
And this is an excellent Mao Jian. It tastes light and refreshing, and I can feel it revive me as I sip after what has been a very long day of shopping. I like that this tea is organic, I like that it’s fair trade … and I like the way it tastes and how it’s giving me a much-needed jump-start!
