With such an evocative name, it seems natural that Snow Jewel is perfect chilled over ice. This Chinese Baihao Yinzhen, or White Hair Silver Needle, is rare and special, with the pure and clean flavours of peaches, lychees and ripe pears. The downy, silvery buds are plucked in spring just before they open, and they’re only lightly oxidised. This Snow Jewel granita will give you a moment of calm, making you feel refreshed and giving you a boost of antioxidants.
Cold infuse some Snow Jewel overnight (we use 4tsp per litre of water) and strain in the morning. Freeze the drink in a container for around eight hours. Take it out of the freezer and scrape the tea with a fork until fluffy. Serve immediately!
