Snow Mist Organic Tea Estate

** The 2024 harvest is in stock and ready to ship! This years harvest is the best of the last three years.

A tea garden like no other, Snow Mist Organic Tea Estate has consistently produced some of the best Taiwanese tea we have ever tasted. We are always excited when our small yearly allotment of tea is ready. 

Snow Mist has all the characteristics that we long for in tea production. Low impact agrochemical free agriculture, high quality care of the plants following permaculture principles, pristine environment, mentoring programs for other younger tea makers, pride in their work and tea, happy prosperous workers and on and on. The videos and pictures that are available on our Instagram feed of this area speak for themselves.

In partnership with this farm we receive a small allotment of tea each year. With full transparency we sell these rare teas into the western market at a cost lower than the domestic market prices. In supporting this garden and giving western tea lovers access to these teas we hope that we can lift the general expectations and understanding of high quality, organic tea outside of Asia. This tea is expensive, but we believe it is worth every penny.

The Teas:

Black: Rich, sweet and dark fruit. Smooth and soft and almost menthol like aftertaste.

White: Rich floral, subtle vegetal, deep sweetness, changing with each steep.

Oolong: Clean high elevation grass, smooth floral, creamy aftertaste.

How was the 2024 harvest? The weather was perfect and the oolong is the best it has been in a couple years. The black and white are stellar as usual!

I bought it again and came back for more

Really a divine trio of teas. The scent and flavors are outstanding. I do not say this often but really some of the best teas I have had recently. I know at this time it is sold out, but next year I hope to see it again and if I do, you better hurry and buy some because I will be buying a lot more :-)

The White

This is a lovely white tea, though the first steep tastes like pea soup. Not my thing, so I tend to pour it out. But from the second steep, all traces of pea soup are gone and replaced by delightful crisp, bright, white florals. The tea also lasts through more steeps than I expected, and is equally delicious when brewed cold.

These two teas are superb examples of high quality Taiwanese teas! Soft, non astringent, and absolutely delicious! These really showcase the flavor of the qinxin cultivar. My first sip of the white brought a slight calmness and instantly reminded me of another tea I've recently had. The cultivar flavor was familiar as I believe the Eastern Beauty is also the qinxin. Though there's not the bug bitten honey sweetness and granite minerality, there is a similar calming sensation. I highly recommend trying these!
