This is an exceptional green tea. It has a lovely sweet, grassy aroma, very delicious and light. I like to steep for two pots, first pot about 1 min 45sec, and for the second pot I like to steep for a little over 2 minutes. I was using water temp of about 170-175 but I think I like it better slightly lower temp of around 165.
Snow Bud (Xue Ya)
Tightly wound leaves characterize this Fujian Province, high-mountain varietal. Named for the occasional white snow-colored patches that spot the leaf, this tea is harvested early to capture a nuanced and sweet taste. Offers floral notes through its light-yellow liquor and it will linger in its aftertaste. Grown at a high elevation, when steeped long, it offers some astringency.
