How It Tastes

Snow Leopard is smooth and floral, with hints of herbs, fresh grass, and a white grape sweetness. It's a subtle tea but has lots of complexity, even seeming to change as it cools. White teas have the least manmade processing steps, so they show a truly natural taste that seems to capture the essence of the cultivars and the environment in northern Fujian province.

History

White teas go through minimal processing, but are handled with maximum care. Plucking must occur in spring, when the flush is at the correct site and there is no rain or dew on the leaves. The fresh-plucked leaves are briefly withered in direct sunshine and then brought to open-air sheds for full-drying. Even the wind moving over the tea is regulated by shutters on the shed walls.
