Tea Review: Autumn Mao Feng (Phoenix Tea)

Autumn Mao Feng
Phoenix Tea
Type: Green
Origin: China, Yunnan Province
Product Description: Not available

Temperature: 175° F
Amount: 3 grams
Steeping Time: 2 minutes

The dry leaves have an aroma of molasses, malt, and warm hay.

The infusion is pale yellow-green with an aroma that is rich, green, nutty, and savory with notes of macadamia nuts and cooked edamame.  The taste is rich, buttery, green, and nutty with notes of cooked edamame.

While the first infusion has the richest, most robust flavor and aroma, subsequent infusions were quite enjoyable.  A slightly higher steeping temperature brings out more green notes, though I do prefer the results at 175° F.
