Review of Wild Snow Sprout Tea

9 of 104 of 54 of 587 of 100
SuperbGoodGood Value

When I first opened the package I thought, is this a fermented tea? It had the rich earthy aroma of a Pu Erh and the smokiness of a mild Lapsang Souchong with just a hint of that 'Asian Market' smell that you get with Pu Erhs. It is delightful and unfamiliar, certainly a new aroma from a green tea.

Once the leaves have been brewed their aroma changes drastically to mildly smoked chestnuts with hints of the vegetal green you expect from a green tea.

The flavor of the tea is very mild and it feels like it cleanses my palate. The flavor is evocative of distant campfires and summer evenings on a lake.

Each infusion brings out something a little different. Sometimes you get more of the vegetal green, other times a grassy green.

Truly a delightful and complex tea.
