About this tea

Tea Story

White teas go through minimal processing but are handled with maximum care. Plucking must occur in spring when the “flush” is at the correct size and there is no rain or dew on the leaves. The fresh-plucked leaves are briefly withered in direct sunshine and then brought into open-air sheds for full drying, where the wind moving over the tea is regulated by shutters on the shed walls. The final removal of moisture is done by very low baking. The resulting leaf style is open and irregularly shaped: whole wilted leaves with whitish tips. Snow Leopard is the finest quality white tea of the style known in China as Bai Mu Dan, made from specially selected varietals of the tea bush. Its flavor is smooth with hints of herbs, fresh grass and flowers, and a white grape sweetness.

Brewing Tips

Start with a preheated cup or teapot.
Measure 2 spoonfuls (3g) of tea for each cup of water.
Bring the water to boil; let it cool for 1 minute (195° F) before steeping tea for 5 minutes.
Strain leaves while pouring.
