This is a really lovely refreshing green tea whose name, BI LUO CHUN literally means ‘green snail spring’. It is so called because it is a green tea whose young leaves are picked in spring and rolled into tight spirals resembling a snail (Luo).

It is one of China’s most famous green teas and is renowned for its delicate appearance and light floral taste and aroma.

Hand picked in the high mountains, where the climate and fertile soils produce teas of exceptional quality, the small, curly, downy, young leaves are only picked  in spring (March/ April), withered, pan fried, sorted and shaped into spirals entirely by hand.

The resulting tea is calming and soothing and has a delicate, fresh, flowery taste and is perfect for drinking throughout the day.

Our tea is sold in multiple packs of 50g.

Recommended brewing method:

As the leaves are very tender and fragile we recommend to brew by the ‘top putting brewing method as it can minimise the leaves being scorched by water that is too hot. This is a easy method of brewing tea, Simply select the amount of tea leaves according to your taste, (as a guide, for 100 ml of water use 3-5 g of tea). Warm the glass, cup or mug with boiling water and then fill the glass with two thirds of hot water (about 80-85 degrees in temperature). Then put the tea leaves gently in to the hot water and wait to drink until most have sunk to the bottom of the glass.

The leaves may be infused several times.The second infusion will be softer in taste but will still have the aroma of fresh grass.

Enjoy the fragrance and tranquility of watching the tea leaves unfurl to stand upright in the water.
