Jade Frost Certified Organic Yunnan Green Tea
Grown 1300 meters above sea level in the Simao area of Yunnan, this is a certified organic green tea new to Sparrowtail with a wonderfully appealing multilayered taste. The flavor is by turns floral, sweet, beany, and vegetal, with very little bitterness.
This is a very "tippy" green tea, picked to a one bud/one leaf standard, and will last for several infusions when brewed with short steeps. The dried tea is light grey-green and white, covered with a fine crystal-like dust from the tiny hairs that coat the leaves and buds. This rather robust high-mountain green tea can be brewed with temperatures between 180-190f.
