An exquisite white tea made entirely from newly sprouted buds. This tea is picked once yearly in April during which the buds are consistent in length and appearance. They are a beautiful bright green color when brewed. The taste is malty with hints of fruit and cane sugar.
Snow Flower Bi Luo Chun (雪花碧螺春) is a tippy style of Yunnan White tea, which is a Xue Ya #100 varietal growing at and altitude 1300 meters (4300 feet) on the southern slope Ma Wei Mountain (just west of Pu'Er City). The processing is a kind of hybrid between green and white tea, with very brief kill-green, minimal rolling and warm air fixing/drying stage at the end. The unique processing, voluptuous Xue Ya varietal, and pure environment all come together to create a wonderful, unique, and (most of all) tasty tea!
This is a classic "pure bud" style Yunnan Green Tea, being a bud only (no leaf) plucking style. We recommend brewing gong fu style (short steepings at first) using 90C water and 5 grams per 100ml vessel. It can be brewed 6 to 8 times gong fu style!
