Bi Luo Chun (Spring Snail) is 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.
We offer 3 quality grades (High, Premium and Exclusive) in a choice of 2 sizes (50 or 100 gm packs). Our High grade is comparable to teas nominated as premium quality in some Australian stores we have sampled. Our Exclusive grade is at the level above which a regular tea drinker from the region where the tea was produced would not easily distinguish further improvement in quality.
We take special precautions to purchase new season stock, air transport and store refrigerated to preserve original tea quality.
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
