* Required Fields
Nonpareil Te Gong Huang Shan Mao Feng Green Tea (2017) I am quite familiar with Huang Shan Mao Feng, but never had a nonpareil version before (maybe a few premium). If I compare this nonpareil to another Huang Shan Mao Feng I recently bought from another Chinese tea store, not advertised as being nonpareil, but also picked in spring 2017, the TeaVivre’s nonpareil one is not as fragrant, not as tasty and definitely not as smooth. Also, the color of wet leaves is not as vibrant. Just in case you think it’s simply a matter of how it was stored, I will tell you that the TeaVivre’s nonpareil l Huang Shan Mao Feng was kept in the double lidded silver tea tin I got at the same time as the tea, and stored it in the fridges, while the tea leaves from the other store were kept in a ceramic tea jar, in my bookcase, in my office. Usually, when there is a nonpareil version of a good tea, I go for it; I just buy less and make it count. But when it comes to this particular one, I would say: don’t bother.
This is a subtle kind of tea, meant to be more elegant and fragrant than others. It has significantly less chestnut than dragonwell, and more floral flavors, and is thinner and more thirst quenching. It's good for more frequent drinking. However, I was slightly dissapointed with this particular variety. Huangshan Mao Feng is my favorite kind of tea, but I feel the floral fragrance of this one I ordered is not as beautiful as ones I've had from other vendors at a significantly lower price.
One of my favourites. Clean, fresh and crisp taste. Really smooth and pleasant mouthfeel without any bitterness. Aroma is bold with freshly cut grass, flowers, toasted chestnuts and sugarcane. I think I noticed some honey too. Tea is sophisticated and subtle. It taste notes of green, sweet, toasted chestnuts, floral, sugarcane fresh and honey. It leaves nice long-lasting and lingering sweetness to mouth. Although it's fairly expensive tea, I recommend to try it, as it's more of an experience than just regular cup of tea.
I am going to have to experiment with this one. The flavor is pleasant, but very subtle.
This is a great tea! One of my favorites sold on teavivre. Pleasant taste, no bitterness. Interesting flowery aroma! With that said, IMHO it is a little bit overpriced, as i have found a few other great green teas on this website that are about 30% cheaper but taste as great.
Very pleasant sublet tasting tea. Light and smooth. This is a good tea for sipping all day long, as its taste is mild and enjoyable.
Lovely umami taste. Clean crisp.
Another tea that is full of positive surprises. When rinsed, and later when water is spilled over leaves it sends strong, brisk smell of freshly cut grass. But taste is completely different - it is sophisticated, smooth and milky. Sweet aftertaste stays for a very long time. Just be careful not to have too much of this tea, for it can be heavy on the stomach.
The dry leaves a re medium long and yellow-green. It’s a very clean and sweet and mineral brew. Notes of green bean, chestnut, and sugarcane with a slightly floral finish. As the leaves open up they become bright green and reveal nice budsets. A nice and refreshing green, mao fengs are my favorite.
This tea is more subtle than apparent. The aroma is light and toasty, with balanced nutty and mineral notes that impart a neutral mouthfeel with an aftertaste that wets the palate. There is a delicate floral sweetness that builds and fades progressively with each passing moment. There is a particular quality to this tea, which is that it promotes salivation. It is the opposite of dry and astringent. This is among the best Huang Shan Mao Feng you will ever find. Pricey? Yes, but the experience is worth an investment. Money comes and goes. Good tea becomes part of you.
