  • 400

Ingredients: Premium green tea, exceptional grade 

Cup Characteristics: Delicious green tea character with fruity aroma and taste

Benefits: Being a non-fermented green tea, Bi Luo Chun has high levels of antioxidants and other natural chemicals that give green teas their ability to reduce the incidence of cancer, promote good skin tone and help reduce the effects of aging.  Also high in vitamin C, fluoride and calcium, they also promote healthy teeth and bones.

Fun to know: Bi Luo Chun tea originated in the area around the eastern peak of Dong Ting mountain in Jiangsu.  In Chinese the name Bi Luo Chun means green snail Spring, in reference to its tight rolled up appearance resembling a snail and the fact that it is picked in Spring.  It was given this name during the Qing Dynasty by the then emperor, Kang Xi, who very much favored the tea, but – perhaps with some reason – was not really enamored with its original name of “Xia sha ren xiang”, which roughly means “scare you to death fragrance”.

During the 1890's it was ranked first amongst Chinese green teas, and since that time has always been ranked in the top three.  For many years it was only grown in the area around Mountain Dong Ting, but has recently also been produced in Zhejiang and Sichuan provinces. However the best Bi Luo Chun continues to be produced in the original mountain area of Dong Ting, where we have shipped our teas from.
