A random Huangshan Maofeng I got as a gift. The leaves were pretty whole with a few buds, slight inconsistencies, while the aroma was rich in nuttiness and floral notes. The liquor is clean and vibrant, and the flavour is decent, tasting very much like a typical decent Chinese green tea. This hurts the tea’s character for me, simply being one-dimensional and too similar to many other teas. Texture is smooth and oily, aftertaste is decent, cha-qi not much, and steep longevity pretty average, topping out at steep 5-6. In the end, I don’t really know much about this tea but it’s an okay daily drinker I guess.
Side note: This will be my last steepster review as I’m starting a tea company in my home country Singapore. Won’t be doing reviews of other company’s teas as that is a conflict of interest in my opinion. To the 6 people who followed me on steepster, thanks for liking my reviews and commenting on occasion, will still be reading your reviews :) If you’d like to check my online shop out, it’s www.sipscollection.com (I will remove the link if steepster mods come knocking, not sure if it’s allowed or not). Have a good day fellas adios
