Jade Snail is a Chinese green tea made up of tightly rolled fuzzy buds that resemble spiral shells or the scroll of a violin. While steeping, they unfurl to deliver intricate notes of roasted nuts, soft smokiness, and a hop-like crispness. As it fades, a dry white grape character lingers. Our Jade Snail green tea is intriguingly delicate and bold.
Green Tea | Moderate caffeine | Steep at 180° for 2-3 minutes.
Escargot is a French term meaning “edible snail” and refers to any number of snail species eaten worldwide. High in protein, they have been enjoyed since prehistoric times, with Romans even considering them a food reserved for the elite. Today, most snails are cooked with herbs and a broth or wine before being served in their shells, though the kinds of herbs and sauces vary from country to country. Or, you could just enjoy a nice cup of tea, no real snails (or jade) needed.
