Sparrow Tongue | Green Tea
Available in 2 ounce quantities only.
A wonderfully fragrant and flavorful rare tea from Sichuan. The aroma is reminiscent of fresh kumquats and the flavor has hints of sweet prairie grass with subtle fruit (almost citrus) notes. This gorgeous traditional tea is entirely hand processed and is sometimes know by it's Chinese name Que She. It is composed of just a bud and one single unopened leaf.
Suggested Steeping Instruction:
Use 1 tsp (3 grams) per 8 oz of water. Steep with 8 oz water at 200° for 2-4 min. Good for multiple steepings.
