From Harney & Sons

Who would not like a nice green tea that is not too expensive? Not us. So when our friend Steve presented this tea from an organic cooperative from Anxi, we bought it. Anxi is located in northern Hunan Province, far from any city. It is a Mao Jian, meaning that it is a bit later in the season. The leaves are a bit bigger and the prices have calmed down.

Great budget-buy! A nice, delicate but flavorful green tea. I purchased this from Harney and Sons at less than $20/lb. Has a nice fruity/floral aroma, and sweet notes of apricot and a slight touch of nuttiness in the sip. Well-behaved and doesn’t seem to get bitter, at least in the 2-3 minute/175° range. I suspect it would remain pretty well behaved if you pushed it to 4 or 5 minutes, too.

As a follow up note, drinking this tea again the other day reminded me a bit of a “magnolia” fragrance oolong I had tried a while back. Straight up tea, though, not a scented or flavored oolong. Therefore, I think the floral notes might be along the lines of a magnolia essence.
