I am excited about the Insider Tea Club, and I am excited about this tea! I am using a small, 4oz, teapot for this, to allow for multiple resteeps and forces attention to each sip. I am doing this note from memory, so I look forward to documenting the next one a bit more clearly. What I remember most about this first pass was the smooth mouthfeel and the pale color. It was also slightly sweet. In fact, I wondered if the instructions were spot on due to the pale color, but really, the instructions were perfect.

Insider Tea Club.
Direct from Taishun County, we have combed over the entire 2011 crop of teas and hand selected the best Green Teas they produced that year. Hand fried in a wok in a similar fashion to Dragon Well, Snow Dragon has an unbelievable sweet flavor that is unparalleled. As you continue to re-steep it, the savory flavors start to emerge making this a tea that provides an entire spectrum of flavor.
