Tao of Tea Snow Dragon Green Tea Review

Today I am reviewing a ‘Snow Dragon’ green tea from a company called ‘Tao of Tea’.

Snow Dragon is a green tea which is twisted with green tea buds in a one leaf to one bud ratio.

The silvery buds, along with the curve of the leaf is traditionally considered to look like a dragon, hence the name ‘Snow Dragon’.

It initially tastes of tea, green vegetation, tree nuts and field flowers.

Minimal bitterness or astringency.

Reasonably thick mouth-feel due to the bud content.

The flavor becomes fruitier in later steeps, developing notes of orange and black currants.
