Good body, full flavored, tending herbaceous with satisfying sweetness.
Fairly color green teas infusion.
100% Premium green tea.
This tea has very well developed long leaves, with a hint of white tip signifying that the plucking is extremely selective. Snow Sprout tea is primarily harvested/plucked during the early spring when the tea bushes first begin to flush in the mountainous region on the Wuyi Mountains.
Although it is a green tea, it is allowed to ferment very briefly to give the dry leaves a dark hue. The taste is much smoother that traditional green teas with body and some pungency. The aroma is almost sweet and floral. This tea is surprisingly pungent tea and is good tea for someone who is traditionally a black tea drinker but would like to try a green tea without giving up too much strength and body.
Consumption: Use 2-4 teaspoons of tea per 4-cup tea pot. Pour in boiling water that has been freshly drawn. (Do not over boil the water as this will de-oxygenate the water and affect the flavor of the tea). Steep the tea for 2-5 minutes depending upon the desired strength of the tea. Stir the tea after about 2 minutes and let it stand for another 15-30 seconds before drinking. Ideally this tea is consumed without sugar or milk.
