Early Spring "Snow Buds" White Tea of Yunnan
These "Snow Buds" are grown in Ning'er county of Simao, and picked in the very early spring. This is picked as a pure bud tea and then carefully processed through frying, rolling and air-drying. This a unique tea bush varietal called 雪芽#100 (Snow Bud #100) and features large size leaf and buds and prominent downy buds.
The taste is fruity and sweet with a touch of grass (umami) to counter it's easy-going sweetness. Perfect white tea for aging! Will change and develop honey malt sweetness with time. Just keep sealed in an opaque pouch or canister!
