Black Mao Feng from Simon LĂ©velt

Style: Keemun Mao Feng – Region: Xiuning, Anhui, China

56 / 100 Aroma: 6/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 3/5

Based on my experiences with black gunpowder, I was not surprised that this doesn't taste like Mao Feng at all. It's more like other Chinese black teas I've had. It's got just a tiny little bit of sweetness but it's hardly there. It's pleasantly almost-bitter (but I did make it pretty strong).
Resteeps quite decently...

Liu An Gua Pian Green Tea from TeaVivre

Style: Lu An Melon Seed – Region: Xiuning, Anhui, China

97 / 100 Aroma: 10/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 4/5

The aroma is quite vegetal and also quite nutty, with note of green beans, spinach, chestnut, sweet sesame seed paste (Halva for those who enjoy Middle Eastern desserts) and a very delicate finish of toast.

Truly a fantastic green tea, much better than any other liu an gua pian that I have tried. The dry leaves have a beautiful aroma and unfurl gently to release their emerald brew. Sweet, rich and releasing different flavors with each steeping.

I used a small glass gaiwan to brew so I could watch the leaves, and did a ...

Now this was more my type of green tea! While not my favorite, I thought it was much better than the last Teavivre green I had, Nonpareil Te Gong Huang Shan Mao Feng.

I'm starting to think I really like this type of green tea. The first sample of it, from Upton, I liked very much, and this one I like even better.

This has a richer and bolder flavor than m...
