Product Description

This is one of Chinas most famous teas. Our Bi Lou Chun was collected by our certified tea sommelier on this year’s spring tea tour. The name Bi Lou Chun translates as either Spring Snail shell or Green Snail Spring. This tea hails from the island of Dongting in the Jaingsu province in China. This is a fairly isolated region 2 hours north of Hangzhou (the hometown of Long Jing.) The leafsets are picked early in the harvesting season with a plucking standard of one bud one leaf. Then they go through very careful processing. The leaves are small and tightly wound resembling a snails shell.   This light bodied tea has a strong roasted vegetal flavour with soft floral hints of sweet citrus and fruity notes.

Region: Dongshan, Jiangsu Province, China

Other Names: Bi Lo Chun, Spring Snail Shell, Pi Lo Chun, Green Snail Spring.
