silver sprout

silver sprout

Fine twisted young leaf that resembles a chun mee style but interspersed with silvery down covered buds. The aroma is quietly floral but gives way to a smokiness, reminicent of a gunpowder but not nearly as bold. The cup is light, yet smoky with a semi buttery mouthfeel. In the finish a dry white grape note, and lingering smoke.

Steep at 180° for 3 minutes.
