Snow Fuzz 
White tea, China

Sweet, savoury, soft and silky
In the small town of Ning’er in southwest Yunnan, these fresh, spring leaves were plucked from the Camellia Sinensis tea plant cultivar affectionately known as White Tea Snow Fuzz.  

This fascinating tea has characteristics of both a white and green tea. The dry leaves smell like pine needles and hay on a warm summer day. Once infused, the leaves emit a fragrance of freshly picked zucchini and cream corn. Once sipped, the flavour softens into a light-bodied tea with a soft vegetal body and a smooth and silky mouthfeel. The savoury notes of the tea deepen on subsequent infusions.

February 2019 harvest.

Preparation: Steep for 3-4 minutes at 80°.
