Winter Pick

**Fresh 2020 pick in stock! This year's winter pick at our partner farm was produced on two days, October 22nd and 25th. After testing them we found a 50-50 mix of days tasted best. The first day had a beautiful up front flavor and the second day had a gorgeous aftertaste. Mixed together was the best of both worlds. If you want to try the days separately we have added another option with a sample of the individual days below!**

Freshly picked, processed and ready to go this Winter Pear Mountain is beautiful. Rich, thick, floral and sweet it is a great example of why the preference for winter time teas come in second only to the first picks of the spring. Grown at 2000m above sea level on an western facing slope, this year's winter harvest season had perfect weather and you can tell from the brew of this easy-to-steep crowd pleaser of a tea.

This tea is the winter pick so the flavors are stronger, more floral and a touch more vegetal than the other seasons. All three seasons are slightly different but all three have the same underlying greatness. Preferences as to the best are your own. You can try the Four-Season Sample Set HERE.
