Product Description

Details

Grown in a UNESCO World Heritage Site in the Wuling Mountain District, China Snow Dragon grows amongst craggy cliffs that mingle with the clouds and mist. Growing at about 3,000 feet, it does take some effort to cultivate. With only one plucking between mid March and early April, it is extremely limited production. The tea is wrapped in cloth for 10 to 15 hours while still warm from the de-enzyming process to bring out deeper flavors and aromas. The flavor is initially warming and roasty, followed by a sweet finish and a deep mineral linger.

Steep Time: 30 seconds-2 min
Water Temp: 170°
TSP per 8 oz.: 1
Infusions: 1-3

China Wuyi Oolong Tea

Grown in an organic tea garden within Wuyishan. Wuyi is categorized by elevation and those at the highest elevations are the most prized. Tea is the sustaining life for Wuyi mountain people. In making this tea, long stylish leaves are twisted sideways into strips and then pan-fired to stop oxidation. The leaves are baked in the final stages of processing to yield a dark brew with hints of smokiness and a distinct fruity flavor.

Steep Time: 1-3 min
Water Temp: 200°-212°
TSP per 8 oz.: 1
Infusions: 2-5
