From Bruu Tea

Mao Jian is a sweet and floral green. There is an honesty in its flavour, reflecting the stress the tea bush goes through, due to the winter snows and altitude. As a result of the climate and temperatures the tea bush is exposed to, the season for the perfect Mao Jian tea is short, with the perfect crop coming from early spring.

I was certainly a little surprised to see a Mao Jian included with my Bruu subscription selections given that I specified that I’m generally deeply not a fan of green tea – but I also said I would try anything at least once with as open a mind as possible, so that’s what I did here…

Honestly, if I’m going to have a straight green tea (as rare as that it) then it’s a Chinese green that I’m going to opt for. So I’ve at least got that going in my favour. I felt like this tea really pushed me out of my comfort zone, but I didn’t hate it for that. There was this note in the cup that I really felt a sense of deja vu with, and it took me a long time to place it but I eventually nailed it down as this buttery lettuce type note that I also experienced in DT’s Green Spiral. I enjoyed that note a lot!

Additionally, the cup had green bean notes and a heavy dose of minerality.

Overall, it’s not my thing – but I definitely appreciated elements of it a lot and I appreciate the push outside of the types of tea I find more safe.
