Review by Patrick
Just received your parcel and all I can say is that the maofeng smells great. I used to buy my own maofeng green tea when I used to live in China. Now I am back in Europe I have a hard time to find the real thing. Your product for sure kosher and the smell just brings me back to China. I will definitely place another order with you in the future. (Posted on 7/12/2015)
Review by Shino
For the first infusion the aroma was very floral, I smelled orchids and slightly a hint of Jasmine. The fragrance was reminiscent of a flower shop, if that makes any sense...

The first infusion had a strong scent but the taste was delicate. Usually I use mineral water for my tea, but because the taste is so subtle for this tea, that I decided to use tap water. Subtle tap water will not overrule the subtle taste.

The second infusion was much much better than the first one. The aroma was toned down slightly while the flavor was stronger, this made the whole taste experience more balanced. It had a hint of sweet fruits I can’t quite pinpoint. (Posted on 9/30/2013)
