May 14th, 15th: New Spring Teas!

Snow Dragon 2011 Like the first flowers poking up through the snow in New England, this was the first tea of the new season. Snow Dragon Tea is light and sweet and quite pleasing to the eye as well.  It s Downy whit tips and light green leaves give this tea wonderful balance of white tea sweetness and body worthy of a delightful green.

Bi Lo Chun 2011 is a frizzy white and green tea curl made by hand on Dongting Island in Jiansu Province. It is light in body and has wonderful light floral aromas, possibly from the surrounding orange trees. 

Namring Upper 1st Flush 2011 This is from the upper part of this huge tea estate. It is a great First Flush Darjeeling from a banner year. A true delight, this tea is light in body, incredibly flavorful and very fragrant. let the freshness of the aromas transport you to the lovely mountains of Darjeeling.
