Spring Snail, Biluochun, DongTing Bi Luo Chun
Bi Luo Chun is one of the top three Chinese teas. Produced in the JiangSu Province, DongTing lake area. The tea is made from the very fine tips of the tea leaves using a traditional and highly skillful process. The tender tea leaves are so fine that 0.5kg of the dry tea can contains up to 60,000 - 70,000 tea leaves. The dry tea leaves have a spiral shape covered by the very fine white down - the result of dried tender tip leaves. The name Spring Snail is after its appearance with various Chinese ancient tales to describe its exquisite aroma and taste.
‘Elegantly slim, spiral shape, fluffy down, flowery fragrance and fruity taste' are the terms the locals use to describe the tea. When made in a glass vessel, the elegant tea leaves seethe as white clouds rolling, accompanied by the fragrant steam, this tea certainly deserves its reputation. It is considered to be one of the finest Chinese teas and frequently used for gifting.

Thank you very much Valley Green Tea for this exquisite green tea. The flavour is complex yet delicate, a delight to the senses.
\"beautifully refreshing fragrance and lingering mellowing taste\" This is a sublime and sophisticated Green Tea. So light, yet so complex at the same time.
Bi Luo Chun has been a favorite tea of mine for a couple of years now. To find a source of organic Bi Lou Chun was very exciting to me. But then to taste the extra fine quality of this Bi Lou Chun was even better. It has a refinement to it, with an exquisite complex aftertaste.This tea has real depth.\r\nThanks for your contribution to the Tea drinking world En Jie.\r\n\r\nRichard.\r\nAustralia
