Shaped into small spirals, these Artisan leaves begin as two leaves and a bud before being formed into the "Snail-Like" shapes that produce one of our best selling China black teas. Full mouth-feel in a rich black tea with a hint of caramel. Treat yourself...have a cup of "Snail".
Carefully curled tealeaves open to buds and leaves that produce tea broth with notes of caramel & burnt sugar. Two leaves and a bud are selected from fresh delicate shoots and are transformed into miniature spiral "Black Snails" of luscious tea. As you steep you will watch the buds soften and open into plump shoot tips and the essence of the oxidized leaves transform the broth into viscus amber tea soup. Smelling the wet leaves and the steaming broth you will be enamored with notes of caramel, burnt sugar, toast & baked bread. So much more than just black tea.
Aroma notes of baked bread & caramel with a viscous smooth mouth-feel make this China classic a must for any avid black tea aficionado...or anyone that likes tea...
