Pre-Qingming Lan Xue Green is an early harvest (before April 5), pan-fired, one bud and one leaf gorgeous green tea. Lan Xue (also known as Orchid Snow) hails from Zhejiang Province, home to many famous and well-loved pan-fired greens. The firing for this tea is done in small batches, by hand, at a low temperature, giving the tea a lovely nutty quality.
Lan Xue is aromatic and lush. Medium-bodied with light notes of lemon and artichoke. A very high quality early flush tea that usually doesn't make its way to the States.
