This snow sprout white tea from Golden Moon Tea is a bit of an anomaly. On sight, it reminds me of a silver needle tea…but the leaves are tough and woody. It also has a very light flavor profile, so using the right sweetener in the right amount is key (unless you want a glass of hot sugar water).
Golden Moon Tea no longer sells this, but American Tea Room’s Ancient Snow Sprout is a good substitute. (And they call it a green tea! Weird!)
