China Snow Bud - Loose White Tea
This tea is a further jewel from China. For more than 100 years this tea has been produced in the South East of the China in mountainous regions of 1000m. After hand plucking this tea is fermented for only a very short time in order to preserve the 'green soul' of the tea. The even leaves of light green colour have a shimmery silver back and the two leaves and a bud plucking style is apparent. The liquor is pale green with a hint of champagne. The taste is complex, sweet and floral in character, with a slightly nutty undertone. A very delicate and exquisite tea.
4-5 heaped tsp/litre 75-80c water for 1-3 mins
