The Jade Dragon Mao Feng’s color is very light and has a vegetal taste, so if you aren’t a fan of that kind of flavor, stay away. Drinking it invokes a feeling of gently waking up on a sunny spring morning. There is a pleasant aftertaste and it almost feels refreshing. It also seems to be more delicate than other green teas I have encountered. The leaves are long and unwieldy; it’s a bit of a challenge to get an exact teaspoon amount when brewing. I make sure to steep the tea for about 3:30-4:00 minutes on a second steep for maximum replication of the taste, and I have never brewed a third cup for fear of severe dilution.

This is easily one of the best and pure-tasting green teas I have had. I am quite disappointed that Teavana has elected to remove this tea from their collection. I made sure to purchase a couple of pounds from their clearance section.

I’m an avid drinker of black, green, and white teas. I also enjoy oolong and the occasional herbal. I am somewhat experimental by blending my own teas from what’s in my cupboard, which is a collection of local shops and larger online retailers.

I strongly prefer hot tea over iced, without sugar, and only rarely add milk, usually to cool down my black teas.
