As one would expect from a mao feng, the leaves of this tea are deep green, twisted curls. I steep 1.5 teaspoons at 170° for two minutes. My first impression is that the tea is smooth and surprisingly sweet.

It has a clean, nutty scent that pairs nicely with the flavour. The tea is slightly nutty and vaguely vegetal with a honey sweetness, a refreshingly clean aftertaste, and a touch of buttery texture. There's a slight fruity acidity to cut through the sweetness and balance the nuttiness. It's simple but delicious.

My 3-minute second steep has that same slight acidity and vegetal notes, but it's got a flatter flavour and texture than the first. The sweetness and buttery texture are gone, but it's still remarkably refreshing. It's a bit disappointing, but it's palatable.

Tranquility is an extremely appropriate moniker for this leaf. It's mild and calming, but its brilliantly clean finish is what makes it really stand out.

Visit Mark T. Wendell Teas for more information on this tea and many more from their extensive product catalogue.
