Description

Cultivated in Wudongshan (Wu Dong Mountain), amidst the high altitudes and fertile soil of the Phoenix range, our Snowflake variety benefits from the profound legacy of ancient tea trees. These venerable trees, growing on rocky terrain, contribute to the tea’s subtle mineral essence, reminiscent of the esteemed Wuyi rock oolongs.

The name “Snowflake” reflects the tea’s ability to encapsulate the serene beauty and purity of snowfall, offering a tranquil and invigorating tea-drinking experience. With its oxidation level carefully balanced between green and black teas, Snowflake harmonizes the freshness of green teas with the depth of black teas, resulting in a captivating aftertaste that lingers like the memory of a peaceful snowfall.
