Snow Leopard is a spring-picked black tea made with hand-picked leaves and buds and uses a unique oxidation process where the tea develops wine-like characteristics. Notes of cocoa powder, red currant, and caramel are accented by notes of clover honey and muscat grape. This tea can be enjoyed over many steeps.
This exquisite black tea is produced with the finest hand-picked leaves and buds and is prepared with similar perfection to Lhotse Black Tea. However, the key difference is in the season of tea growth and fermentation process. During the tea-making process, an anaerobic method is used for fermentation or oxidation. While in Lhotse Black preparation a constant flow of natural mist is applied during oxidation, whereas in Snow Leopard, the mist is completely disallowed and the tea is allowed to get oxidized with the available oxygen within the leaf. A chunk of tea mass is compressed so as to allow an anaerobic natural reaction to take place so that the sweet character is attained with a hint of Winey taste with darker reddish infusion and liquor profile.
One teaspoon of tea per 8 ounce cup. Cool boiling water for 1 minute, then steep tea 3 - 4 minutes. Tea can be steeped more than once.
Again an obviously high quality tea but I like others better. Again, a bit too woodsy for my taste.

People! Drink this! It's a lively, lovely black tea that tastes unlike any you've had before. It's gentle, fragrant, lightly smoky, energetic, and lithe. Good for the morning, but light enough to be fine in the evening, too, and it won't ruin your sleep. Also, it doesn't cost much.

Dear Jason, Thank you for your feedback. We are thrilled to know that you enjoyed every sip of this tea:)
It's is a very rich tea, strong and full-bodied so I get multiple steepings out of each serving. There's very little astringency when it's brewed correctly. Absolute favorite. I will definitely be buying this tea again:)
