    The ride starts with a a smooth and deceptively simple profile; as this tea unfurls, notes of wax beans give way to an aromatic finish which reminds us of the fragrant qualities of Oleo-Saccharum.

These trees may live several hundred years and are often found 'wild' (or at least un-groomed for decades) in the mountains.  They were named 'snow mountain' because young leaves are covered in beautiful white down.
