2022 Biluochun 碧螺春, pre-Qingming
The name Biluochun means "the jade green snail of Spring", and it recalls all its charming characteristics: the traditional curly shape, the brilliant silver-green color, and the excellent fragrance of the very early spring.
It is produced in Taihu Lake, Jiangsu province, where the dried tea strips are tightly tied and curled into a snail shape.
In a Biluochun garden tea trees and fruit trees are famously intercropped: in the landscape we can see tea trees and peach, plum, apricot, persimmon, orange, ginkgo, pomegranate and other fruit trees.
High-grade Biluochun requires 60,000 to 70,000 tea buds for 0.5kg of dry tea.
After brewing, its leaves roll in the cup releasing their fragrance while flying up and down; they have silver and green hues for a cool and sweet feeling with floral and light yellow fruit aromas.
