What is Bi Luo Chun?

Biluochun or Bi Luo Chun or Pi Lo Chun (Chinese: 碧螺春) is a famous loose leaf green tea origins from the Dongting mountain region near Lake Tai in Suzhou, Jiangsu, China. Also known as Pi Lo Chun, it is renowned for its delicate appearance, fruity taste, floral aroma, showy white hairs, and early cropping. The name Biluochun literally means “green snail spring”. It is called so because it is a green tea that is rolled into a tight spiral, resembling snail meat, and is harvested in early spring.
