Bi Luo Chun (Spring Snail) (Premium Grade)
Bi Luo Chun (Spring Snail) is rated as one of the top three Chinese teas. Produced in JiangSu province DongTing lake area, the tea is made from the very fine tips of the tea leaves using a very traditional and complex process. The tender tea leaves are so fine that 0.5kg of dry tea contains up to 60,000 – 70,000 tea leaves. The dry tea leaves have a spiral shape covered by the very fine fur of the tender leaves. It has therefore gained the name of Spring Snail with an ancient tale attached to it. The depth of the tea is beyond description.
The locals describe it as: ‘stringy slim, spiral shape, full body fur, flowery fragrance and fruity taste, it is so tastily refreshing that it makes one’s mouth water.’ When made in a glass tea vessel, the elegant tea leaves seethe as white clouds rolling, accompanied by the fragrant team, this tea certainly deserves its reputation. It is considered as one of the finest Chinese teas frequently used by Chinese officials as gifts to other diplomats.
