Short introduction:

  • Tea style: Biluochun (碧螺春), literally "green snail spring" green tea
  • Place of origin: Dongting Mountain near Lake Tai (太湖), Suzhou, China
  • Harvest: 2020 spring
  • Notes: fresh green vegetables, slight bitterness, vibrant floral aroma
  • Recommended for: early morning or after-lunch tea sessions

Biluochun (碧螺春), or literally translating, "green snail spring" is one of the most famous and sought-after green teas of China. An unusually vibrant, slightly bitter green tea, it is harvested in early spring from a hairy cultivar of the tea tree which is also visible in the final brew. The dried, curled leaves reseble snails and snail meat in their appearance, hence the name of the tea. This exquisite green tea was harvested from buds and young leaves in early spring of 2020.

Our brewing recommendations:

  • Porcelain or ceramic gaiwan or teapot of 100-200ml capacity;
  • Spring water or purified water at 80-85°C temperature;
  • Gongfu-style brewing with about 6-8 gramms of tea leaves;
  • Up to 6 infusions at 10-20 seconds per steep.
