Grown at a high elevation in Taiwan, gives this tea a great cooling effect to the body. With their long twisted dark green leaves these guys open up at their own pace. This allows the taste to change and become soft and less green as you steep. Its refreshing floral notes create a creamy taste in the mouth that makes you want to go back for more.

Steeping Time: We suggest that you rinse your tea leaves before enjoying them, simply add water to the leaves and discard. This wakes them up and they are ready to go. For your first steep, we suggest a 30-50 second steep. For the second steep 10 seconds is best, simply add 5 seconds to each of your next steeps. This will allow you to experience the full range of tastes the leaves have to offer.
