Considering the price, the tea seems to be of good quality.
For this review, I used a small glass pitcher and bottled water.
The tea was also strained through a stainless steel mesh filter.
Steeped for 30 seconds.
The tea has a smooth, well-balanced flavor.
The taste of roasted chestnuts is very apparent, while grass, wildflowers, and tupelo honey swirl around correspondingly. There are some other vegetal notes as well.
In my opinion, this tea doesn’t need any sweetener added.
Flavor notes: grass, roasted chestnuts, wildflowers, umami, tree sap, and tupelo honey.
Steeped for 45 seconds.
The wildflower note has further developed into more of a lavender note.
Just a little bitterness, but it’s still pretty smooth.
Steeped for 1 minute.
A bit of a lemon zest tang has developed, but the overall flavor profile is still very nutty.
This tea definitely has a noticeable amount of caffeine.
I really like this tea.
A well-balanced nutty flavor, and a decent amount of caffeine.
An excellent harvest of mao feng green tea for a reasonable price.
You don’t always have to spend a lot of money for a good green tea, and this is a prime example of that.
