Nonpareil Te Gong Huang Shan Mao Feng Green Tea from TeaVivre

Style: Mao Feng Green Tea – Region: Huangshan, Anhui, China

70 / 100 Aroma: 6/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 3/5
May. 14th, 2013

Very smooth, but not aromatic enough for me when brewed.

As usual with TeaVivre, the dry leaf is intensely aromatic, suggesting sweet and umami flavors. The leaf looks to consist exclusively of tips, with two very tiny leaves attached to a bud, the leaves hardly bigger than than the bud itself. Upon brewing though...

Organic Tian Mu Mao Feng Green Tea from TeaVivre

Style: Mao Feng Green Tea – Region: Zhejiang, China

60 / 100 Aroma: 6/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 3/5
Apr. 14th, 2013

I was expecting to like this tea a lot, and I just didn't. It wasn't terrible, but I liked it considerably less than a number of much cheaper teas, and than most of the other green teas I've sampled from TeaVivre.

Wiry dry leaf has an intense aroma, very fresh, and suggestive of savory qualities, but also highly ve...

546 Mountain Peak Mao Feng Organic from SpecialTeas

Style: Mao Feng Green Tea – Region: Zhejiang, China

77 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 5/5
Aug. 6th, 2012

A blast from the past--somehow I forgot to post this review, so enjoy it and miss SpecialTeas!

I found this tea to taste more similar to other Zhejiang green teas that I've tried than it did to mao feng green tea from other regions of China. Aroma is strong, fresh, toasty, and grassy. I can see both the fruity and...

Huang Shan Mao Feng Green Tea from TeaVivre

Style: Mao Feng Green Tea – Region: Huangshan, Anhui, China

87 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 5/5
Apr. 30th, 2012

Short summary: very smooth, extremely pleasing flavor, not the strongest aroma, and picky on brewing temperature. Exceptionally smooth for this price.

Dry leaf is intensely aromatic, and packed very loosely. A lot of leaf (by volume) is needed to produce a normal-strength cup.

I found this tea was picky about b...

Huang Shan Mao Feng from Teaspring

Style: Mao Feng Green Tea – Region: Huangshan, Anhui, China

94 / 100 Aroma: 10/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 4/5
Mar. 12th, 2012

This tea was served to me, Gong Fu style, by Evan. Dry leaf was extremely aromatic.

I found it to be simultaneously strong and refined. The other mao feng green teas I've tried have either been relatively coarser-tasting, with more astringency, or smooth but too weak. This was a powerful tea with a bold flavor, b...

Green Mao Feng Imperial from Upton Tea Imports

Style: Mao Feng Green Tea – Region: China

73 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 4/5
Sep. 8th, 2011

The dry leaf has an intense fragrance that is more food-like than tea-like, and suggests a savory dish, but also suggests sweetness.

Upon brewing this tea, however, it is less savory than the aroma suggests: mild, sweet, mellow. Surprisingly dark color, a brownish amber, but very clear. Slightly vegetal. Subdued,...

Huangshan Maofeng Green Tea from Starway (Tea King of China)

Style: Mao Feng Green Tea – Region: Huangshan, Anhui, China

77 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 5/5
Aug. 29th, 2011

I can't believe the price on this tea: 6 ounces for $3. I wasn't expecting much, and I was literally blown away. This is an outstanding tea for this price. Many whole leaves, and mostly large, only slightly broken pieces. The leaf is lightly packed and takes up a lot of space. The instructions say to brew with 2-3...

China Green Tips Filterbag from Tazo Tea

Style: Mao Feng Green Tea – Region: Zhejiang, China

57 / 100 Aroma: 5/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 3/5
Dec. 7th, 2010

Served in a Starbucks. I was impressed with this for a tea bag, but it really did not compare to the majority of the loose-leaf green tea I buy.

Aroma was a bit muddled, vaguely toasty, fairly vegetal, and with only a hint of grassiness. Warmer, and less crisp and refreshing than I like. I like Zhejiang greens an...

Three Kingdoms Mao Feng Green Tea from Teavana

Style: Mao Feng Green Tea – Region: Fujian, China

63 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 2/5
May. 23rd, 2010

This is a very mild and sweet green tea, similar to Teavana's Pi Lo Chun but less aromatic and perhaps slightly grassier. Pleasing but bordering on bland and boring if brewed as instructed. I find that with a very long steep time (8+ min), however, it acquires nuances in the aroma that are absent otherwise...includin...
