Bi Lo Chun
A subtle tea with a wild aroma and unique mellow taste. Bi Lo Chun in Chinese means Spring Green Snail . The name was given by the Emperor Kang Xi in the seventeenth or eighteenth century who felt the steeped tea looked like tiny green snails. Bi Lo Chun is one of China's famous rare teas. It originated from two mountains in the west part of Dongting in Jiangsu province China. Today Dongting still produces the best quality Bi Lo Chun.Evaporating water from the lakes keeps the mountains covered with clouds and mist ideal growing conditions for top quality Bi Lo Chun. Peach plum and apricot trees are planted between the tea bushes. The tea leaves absorb some of the fragrance from these fruit trees which helps gives Bi Lo Chun its special aroma and flavor. The tea leaves for Bi Lo Chun are only picked once a year during mid-March to mid-April when the leaves are at their peak. The tea is hand picked for just the leaf and its bud.
