2022 Bi Luo Chun Green Tea by Tea and Whisk
Fulfilled by our friends at Tea and Whisk
One of China's most famous green tea. Bi Luo Chun usually tightly rolled into a spiral, like a snail's shell. If the spiral shape rolled is not tight and consistent, then you know it's not a high-quality Bi Luo Chun. Bi Luo Chun is very tender and covered with white tips. This green tea is also one of the very few teas that only available at our shop right around after springtime picking.
This Bi Luo Chun is a high mountain tea from Zhenghe Province, more commonly known for its white tea. It consists of only the finest silver tips of the tea leaves picked around the end of the month of April.
This year Bi Luo Chun arrive much earlier than usual. Usually, the harvesting time is around April, but the weather got warmer sooner this year. The sooner pick resulting in a much sweeter aftertaste. This is the one green tea you don't want to miss this year!
