Also known as Xuelong, this exceptionally rare Chinese green tea is grown in the southern region of China’s Zhejiang Province and exhibits many of the prized characteristics of high altitude green teas.  Hand dried, this mild green tea has an elegant, sweet flavor.  The same leaves can be used for multiple infusions without even a hint of bitterness.

Green teas all share one important characteristic-they are never allowed to oxidize.  This is the primary trait that distinguishes green teas from other types of teas and it is achieved by heating the leaf soon after it is harvested.  The method used to heat the leaf plays an important role in determining the tea’s overall character. Our Snow Dragon is hand dried using a dry heat method, giving it a mellow toasted character.

 Of all the tea produced in China, 70% is green tea, and tea was once used as a form of currency in China.

We recommend pairing Snow Dragon with chicken or fish.  It works well with light, creamy sauces and can also be paired with Asian style chopped salads or fruit.

We also recommend steeping Snow Dragon for 1 minute at 160°.  You can re-steep the same leaves up to five times and still get a perfect cup.  In fact, some people have been known to discard the first steep in favor of the second or third, but not at TeBella.  We wouldn’t dare waste good tea!
