Bi Lo Chun Green Tea  碧螺春
  • Bi Lo Chun Green Tea 碧螺春

    A delicate and representative Chinese green tea with history. It is named after its spirally shape that resembles snails, and the season that it is harvested and produced in, which is Spring. Today, Bi Luo Chun is mostly cultivated in Dongting Mountains near Lake Tai in Suzhou, Jiangsu Province in Southern China. It features showy white hair all over spiral tiny sprouts, and a delicate fruity and floral aroma, as well as a smooth finish. It is as much of a pleasure sipping it as it is to contemplate the tiny little tea shoots blossoming and dancing up and down in the water.

It is as much of a pleasure sipping it as it is to contemplate the tiny little tea shoots blossoming and dancing up and down in the water. Given its delicate nature, we recommend infusing it with 80 °C water in a glass cup (if you’d like to observe the leaves unfold and dance). Add the water first, then add in the tea leaves to steep for a few minutes. We recommend a tea water ratio of 1:50, and a steeping time of about 1-2 minutes, but you are encouraged to adjust to find your optimum balance of flavour!

    Like other classical green teas produced in China, it goes through the main procedure of pan-roasting fixation method, shaping and drying, therefore remains very little oxidized because of the little time it has chance to react with oxygen. As a result, the tea features a particular nutty and floral aroma; and an abundant of the original chemical composition of the tea leaves such as tea polyphenols, amino acid, caffeine, chlorophyll, and vitamins are preserved.
