  • Inside Story

    Jade Dragon Snow Mountain is a mountain massif or small mountain range in Yulong Naxi County, Lijiang, in Yunnan province, China. Its highest peak is named Shanzidou and it is 5,596m above sea level. This is a lovely combination of hand made robust Yunnan black tea from Assamica plant pressed in cotton wrap with Snow Chrysanthemum flowers from Kunlun Mountains in Xinjiang province. One ball can be infused up to 5 times before it completely separate. Each dragon ball is roughly 8 grams of tea, which will brew just perfect in 500ml pot.

  • Ambience

    DRY LEAF: Beautifully rolled small yellow-brown balls with golden tips and imprinted chrysanthemum flowers. Floral aroma is mingling with an aroma of fresh zest, dry herbs and sultanas.
    INFUSED LEAF: After first infusion (in a Gaiwan – cup with lid) and the tea is still in a perfect ball shape. It takes up to 5 infusions to get these tea leaves to freely float! Amazing :) The aroma is peppery, bergamot and floral with a sweetness of caramel.
    LIQUOR: Cup vivid crimson like with an aroma of orange peel. Deliciously smooth and honey sweet mouth-feel with a bouquet of wild herbs, bergamot & clove after-taste. The cup has a little astringency, no acidity and is heavenly perfumed and creamy. Pleasantly refreshing yet very relaxing tea due to the calming properties of Chrysanthemum flowers!
