CHINA - BI LO CHUN
This famously high regarded Spring harvest tea comes from the Jiangsu region, in the East of China. It was originally titled Xia Sha Ren Xiang, translating to ‘Astounding Fragrance’ because of it’s rich aroma. The tea was later renamed Bi Lo Chun by the Kangxi Emperor. A slightly more elegant name, meaning ‘Green Snail Spring’ due to the colour and shape of the wound buds. This tea yields a mild, fruity liquor.
For best results, brew at 80 degrees for 2 minutes. Use a dose of 1.9 grams per 100ml of water. Infuse twice.
