Sparrow Tongue | Green Tea
Available in 2 ounce quantities only.
A wonderfully fragrant and flavorful rare tea from Sichuan Province, China. The aroma is reminiscent of fresh kumquats and the flavor has hints of sweet prairie grass with subtle fruit and citrus notes. This gorgeous tea is entirely hand-processed and is sometimes known by its Chinese name, Que She. It is composed of a bud and one single, unopened leaf.
This particular tea was made by Mr. Guo Ru Yun of Sichuan, who has been making tea for more than 30 years. His grandfather and his son both work with Mr. Guo producing rare specialty teas in very limited quantity.
