Bi Luo Chun 碧螺春New Mexico Tea Company Bi Luo Chun 碧螺春
Bi Luo Chun is cultivated in Dong Ting, Jiangsu Province. Bi Luo Chun from Dong Shan (East Mountain) is considered the best. Bi Luo Chun tea is also grown in Zhejiang and Sichuan provinces. Their leaves are larger and less uniform (may contain yellow leaves). They taste more nutty than fruity and smooth.

This tea would pair well with sweet and fruity foods.

The translation of Bi Luo Chun is green snail (or pearl) spring. Commonly listed as one of the Ten Great Teas of China, Bi Luo Chun was given its name by emperor Kanxi of the Qing dynasty as he thought the regional name, Xia Sha Ren Xian (meaning astounding fragrance), was not elevated enough for the quality of the tea. The elegance and nobility of the tea character, as well as its resemblance to a snail, yielded the name known worldwide.
