"Green Snail" Bi Luo Chun Green Tea
When the wise tea master Lao Cha was walking through the tea gardens with his disciple, the young monk asked his teacher:
— Sensei, why does this tea garden have fruit trees growing everywhere?
— So that the tea which we will make from these fine tea leaves can have the sweet taste of fruits, which it absorbs from the nearby trees.
— Sensei, so how will we call this tea?
— We shall call it Bi Luo Chun – “The Green Snail of Spring”!
Made only from the tips of tea leaves, in a very scrupulous process that results in its tightly rolled-up shape, Bi Luo Chun is renowned for its strong fruity aroma and mellow flavor. A plantation growing Bi Luo Chun is amazing to visit, with the tea plants mixed with a variety of fragrant fruit trees to give the tea its distinct aroma and taste. Our Bi Luo Chun is a premium grade tea that comes directly from the slopes of Dong Ting mountain. It has a bright green color and strong citrusy aroma.
