Tea Review: Jade Snail Organic (Kuan Yin Teas)

Jade Snail Organic
Kuan Yin Teas
Type: Green
Origin: China, Hunan Province
Product Description: 
A premium organic green tea from Hunan Province in China, made with one bud and two leaves newly opened after Qing Ming festival in April. The leaves are tightly rolled into a snail shape, and the liquor features a bright jade color. The body is mellow and vegetal, with delicate notes of sweet melon to finish.
Temperature: 175° F
Amount: 3 grams
Steeping Time: 2 minutes

The dry leaves have a sweet green aroma with whole wheat-like notes.

The pale yellow-green liquor has a savory and vine green aroma with notes of ground nuts.  The taste is sweet and vine green with light notes of sesame and a sweet green and sesame finish.

This green tea is very approachable and remained flavorful throughout three infusions with the promise of more.

This tea was received as a gift from a third party.
