Named for the shape of the tea buds, which resemble little pointy bamboo shoots, this tea grows wild.  It is organic and entirely hand processed by a 72-year-old woman tea master - rare in the tea world.  She carefully dries and fires this tea first in a wok, then in a bamboo basket over a charcoal fire.  The leaves are uniform and dark green, yielding a clean cup with a sweet aftertaste.  Look for notes of nut and a wildflower aroma.

Ingredients:  green tea
