Also known as ‘Xue Long’ (a translation of its English name), Snow Dragon Organic Green Tea is lovingly harvested and created in the Fujian Province of southeast China. When it comes to flavour and aroma, this brew is certainly as equally beautiful as the very landscapes in which it is grown. This includes a distinct, lusciously grassy taste which, providing it is enjoyed without any accompaniments, is simply unmistakable, and truly invigorating.
This Loose Leaf Green Tea consists entirely of young leaf buds. The reference to ‘Snow’ in this Green Tea’s name is drawn from the fine hairs that cover the tea leaves, which have a white appearance. ‘Dragon’, meanwhile, is in reference to the roasting method applied to this tea’s production. Perhaps most importantly, however, Snow Dragon Organic Green Tea is produced using only bio cultivation methods. This ensures the wonderful quality of the beverage, while also maintaining the tea plants without the use of synthetic fertilisers, herbicides, and pesticides. Do you wish to treasure mother earth as much as your taste buds? this tea is, without a doubt, the choice for you.
Teas grown in the Fujian Province of China have garnered worldwide fame, both in the modern day and dating back thousands of years. Snow Dragon Organic Green Tea, in comparison, is a relative newcomer to the western world. Despite this, Tea’s of Fujian origin are almost always of great quality owing to the province’s subtropical climate and mountainous terrain.
The Wuyi Mountain range that borders Fujian and Jiangxi has been placed on the UNESCO list of World Heritage Sites, and has been one of the major centres of Fujian tea production for centuries. The entire province is also home to an estimated 330 varieties of the Camellia sinensis plant (or ‘tea plant’) - the largest number in all of China. Interestingly, while Oolong Teas are arguably the most famous product of the Fujian Province, green teas such as Snow Dragon Organic Green Tea have only very recently increased in demand.
The term ‘Organic’ refers to the way in which agricultural products are grown and processed, specifically without the use of pesticides, herbicides or insecticides, as well as bioengineered genes, and petroleum / sewage-based fertilisers. All organic teas or tisanes, whether you choose Rooibos Organic Tea, Misty Green Organic Tea or, of course, Snow Dragon Organic Green Tea, are certified by the regulatory body within the producing country (in this case, China) and checked and certified again as they enter the European Union. These EU regulations are very robust and uniform across Europe, and should a tea fail inspection, the container is resealed and returned to the country of origin. This guarantees that every cup of this particular Green Tea, through The Kent and Sussex Tea and Coffee Company’s nurturing hands, is of only the finest quality, and likewise meets all required standards.
