Xin Yang Mao Jing loose tea leaves

Xin Yang Mao Jian

1.5 / 5

I brewed this tea twice to make sure I didn’t just mess something up, but it came out the same both times. Very strong for a green tea, grassy to the point of being a little astringent. It is advertised as “Robust flavour, stronger and thicker green tea.” That is an understatement in my opinion. It reminds me of back when I first started trying teas with bad green tea bags. It lacks all of the subtlety and sweetness of a good green tea to me. Everyones tastes are different, so maybe someone would like it, but it is far too heavy for me to enjoy.
