From Eastern Leaves

The name Biluochun means “the curly green jade of Spring”, and it recalls all its charming characteristics: the traditional curly shape, the brilliant silver-green color, and the excellent fragrance of the very early spring.

It is produced in Taihu Lake, Jiangsu province, where the dried tea strips are tightly tied and curled into a snail.

In a Biluochun garden tea trees and fruit trees are famously intercropped: in the landscape we can see tea trees and peach, plum, apricot, persimmon, orange, ginkgo, pomegranate and other fruit trees.

High-grade Biluochun requires 60,000 to 70,000 tea buds for 0.5kg of dry tea.
After brewing, its leaves roll in the cup releasing their fragrance while flying up and down; they have silver and green hues for a cool and sweet feeling with floral and light yellow fruit aromas.

Origin: Taihu lake area, Jiangsu province
Flush: Spring 2022, Pre-qingming
Format: 25 gr. Signature package
Storage: the leaves can be stored in their original package or in ceramic vases. Avoid heat, light, and moisture.

Awesome medium bodied green tea in a way that’s a bit hard to describe. Already when opening the package, the pungent and complex aroma suggests it would be a good one – it is meaty, grassy and nutty at once.

The tea tastes very fresh and savoury with a lot of bitterness and a nutty finish. There is a decent astringency early on, but the liquor texture is also very smooth – somewhat confusing for the mouth. The taste does get more sweet and vegetal around steep 3 and also a bit brothy and floral towards the end. Specific flavours I noticed are those of green beans, lime, green pepper, orchid, and chicken broth. The aftertaste is sweet with a hint of mussels and the cha qi mostly warming in the core.
