075 / Winter Sprout


Winter Sprout is the young upstart tea that’s harvested during the darkest night of winter before spring.  The small buds are playful and innocent.  The tea starts sweet then has an almost saline quality of cleansing to its finish.  We smell lilac and the tropical star fruit.  If there isn’t a Pixar character named Sprout already, we think there will be one day.
