Silver Snail Jasmine is a gorgeous green tea from Yunnan, China, scented with fresh jasmine blossoms! The varietal used for this tea is assamica, meaning that the leaves are larger, thicker, and with a more bold flavor than the usual style of Chinese green tea, most of which uses a small-leaf varietal.

This medium-bodied green tea opens with creamy edamame and oat, accented with jasmine and vanilla, while each steep presents a very light gardenia note.

This tea is also a brilliant example of how the right balance of bitterness and astringency can be very enjoyable and keep you coming back for more! Keep infusion times short at first, and slowly increase them throughout the session. This tea will infuse many times, and the aftertaste lingers for a VERY long time.
