Snow Leopard Black Tea - Bright | Sweet | Hint Of Wine

5 reviews


This exquisite black tea is produced with the finest hand-picked leaves and buds and is prepared with similar perfection of 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.

Black tea unlike any other

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.

Superb 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:)

Outstanding smooth and balanced flavor! Great daily tea!

First thing first, A Very fresh tea. As soon as I opened the bag, a wonderful aroma greeted me. The tea tastes great. It has a little note of natural sweetness to it. My husband asked if I put sugar in it. There is also just a nice, balanced finish. I've been ordering from this brand frequently, and their teas are truly amazing. Sagarmatha Gold and Ruby oolong to name a few are my must-have teas. Prior to this, I had used tea bags (sometimes Lipton sometimes more expensive brands), however, this is beyond night and day. I love this tea.
