YEAR 2018 SPECIAL SELECTED BI LUO CHUN
Bi Luo Chun is one of the “Ten Famous Green Teas” in China. A non-fermented variety, Bi Luo Chun is mainly produced in Dongting Mounting oiangsu Province. It was commonly known as “Xia Sha Ren Xiang” (Astounding Frgrance) among natives on the island.
As the legend goes, it struck Qing Dynasty Emperor Kangxi as a rare find and true delight. The Emperor later named it Bi Luo Chun (the Green Snail Spring).
Pluckers only plucked the tea leaves in early spring. Its tender leaves and buds are rich in minerals. The production is governed by stringent rules: only leaves plucked on the day are fried; no overnight leaves are used. During the process, tea farmers keep stir-frying the tea leaves in the wok – this is compared to the production of a high-end art and craft object, limited, and hence precious. Leaves and buds are rolled by hand to form tiny snail-like spirals covered in fine silver hairs. These beautiful tender tea leaves brews a bright yellow-green liquor, with unique spring-fresh, brisk and slightly sweet notes, featuring a very pronounced aroma of floral and fruit. It is a cup to sip and enjoy at any time of the day.
