Another jewel from the famed tea producing region of Fujian, snowbuds is a beautiful example of artisan tea. Hand plucked leaves and buds grown at high elevation are lightly oxidized to maximize the natural sugars in the leaves. Visually, this tea is a mixture of silver, white, olive green and dark green, showcasing the complexities of the two leaves and one bud ratio. The brewed tea is a champagne color in the cup and flavor notes of mild fruit, oak, and sweet hay.
