Guangxi Green Snail
From the Southern Chinese province of Guangxi comes this beautiful green tea. The leaves and the white tips are rolled into snail-like shapes, hence the name.
It is a joy just to watch the leaves unfolding into their original form and becoming whole again (see pictures to the left).
The taste is bold with fruity, flowery and nutty notes and a long aftertaste.
Each infusion of the same leaves is slightly different to the previous one so it pays to stick to the rather short brewing times.
