Curled Dragon Silver Tip
They say that handmade gifts are the best of all. Look at the dry leaf and see how the leaves are coiled up like a sleeping baby dragon. Maybe that is why it gets its name. It takes particular skill to be able to create a charming shape like these leaves. Silver tips in the finished dry leaf are a sign that there are many small hairs on the leaf that impart sweetness and flavor to a tea. Curled Dragon Silvertip steeps into a delicate pale yellow green liquor and the taste is light, smooth, and slightly vegetal with a hint of lemon and hazelnuts and a gently sweet finish. It is a perfect tea for those who want to drink green tea but want a tea with very little to no astringency.
Use 2 grams of tea for every 6 ounces of water. Generally this works out to a teaspoon per every 6 ounces of water. Steep for 3 minutes with 180-degree water.
