Jade Snail, 'Yu Luo'
Green tea, China

20g

Summer grass, unripe lemon, green melon ~ light bodied
These fresh, spring leaf buds are grown at an altitude of 1750m in Jing Dong, at the base of the Ai Lao mountains in Yunnan Province, southern China. 

When steeped, they release a sweet, fruity and grassy aroma. The infused tea is light-bodied and has a vigorous mouthfeel with notes of summer grass, unripe lemon, green melon and a hint of bitterness in the finish. It pairs well with a green salad or a smokey cheese.

March 2020 harvest.

Preparation: Steep for 2 - 3 minutes at 85°. Two - three infusions.
