Product Description


In the 18th century, Emperor Kang Xi named this exquisite tea Pi Lo Chun, or Spring Green Snail, because he felt when steeped, the tea leaves looked like small green snails.


Grown in the Jiangsu province of China, this curly-leafed tea is traditionally planted next to peach and plum trees, and the tea bushes absorb the fragrance from the blossoms and fruit. When the leaves are still warm after the first stage of processing, small mounds are rolled by hand in three stages. The delicate, pliant leaves are transformed into the recognizable spiral shape.
