Tea Company: Canton Tea Co. (website)
Ingredients: green tea
Vendor Suggested Preparation: 2 tsp per cup (200ml) and brew cool, around 65°C (149°F), allowed to steep for 2-3 minutes and infuse at least 3 times
This is such a light, refreshing tea. Very mild, very light – the brewed color is a light pale wheat color. The brew has a light hint of a tang or tart to it as well. Lovely.
I once read a Japanese food related comic, that mentioned drinking hot tea on a hot day. I alway thought that was absolutely insane. However, this tea makes me understand this. I could drink this tea on a hot day and be refreshed and happy.
For an everyday drinking tea however, I’d like something with a little more oomph.
You can purchase the Snow Buds (Xue Ya) directly from the Canton Tea Co. website.
