Material Selection

The material used for the mountain Snowmelt is the ancient tea trees that are more than 200 years old, located in the area of ​​2680 meters above sea level in the Snow Mountain (Daxueshan). The tea trees grow slowly, but the assimilation products are abundant. So the tea has good quality, rich content and good resistance to brewing.


Da Xue Shan Dianhong Sun dried Chinese Black Tea


Although Mountain Snowmelt is a black tea, it uses a “sun-dried” process that is different from ordinary black tea.

The procedure is withering, rolling, fermentation (focusing on light oxygen fermentation), drying (sunlight drying). There is no high-temperature drying and baking as the ordinary process.

Because there is no excessive baking and aroma lifting, the sun-dried process makes Mountain Snowmelt not only resistant to brewing, but also resistant to storage. Even, for a longer storage period, it will have better taste.

    Super tea!
    This is a super tea for me. This is the best tea I have tasted so far. I used gaiwan to brew it. I like the taste so much, with chocolatey and nutty notes. The most amazing part of it was I brewed 12 infusions plus 1 rinse but it was still tasteful in the end. It is really worth of the price. I wanna call it super tea!
