"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. Bi Luo Chun Green Tea is in China's Top Ten Teas list. The name was given by the Qing dynasty’s Emperor Kangxi, who adored the tea.
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, with a unique thirst-quenching quality.
