Snow Sprouting Green

Starting at: $6.00

Snow Sprouting Green is a hand-harvested, single-plucking tea vintage April 2015. This particular varietal has large predominantly single buds, evident in the plump, snowy white leaves. The most unusual feature is that this tea was not rolled during processing. Plucking was precise and limited, with each worker picking about 3 kgs per day. The leaves have plenty of silver, as one might expect from this early plucking, and the cup gives a lively fresh, sweet flavor. Something oxymoronic about this too: the early harvest of buds results in a delicate flavor, and yet the taste is quite lush and satisfying, somewhat surprising in view of the fact that the buds and budsets were not rolled. These buds brew an elegant cup that exemplifies the best of China's early spring, classic green teas. The quantity is limited. Use 3g (1 rounded teaspoon) dry leaves per 6 ounces spring water heated to a temperature of 175-185°, steeping  to 3 to 4 minutes.
