Green tea from the Jiangsu province of China. Pi Lo Chun (sometimes written biluochun) is made from the finest tender buds, gathered and processed exclusively by hand. Perfumy and sweet floral, with a full body and slight earthiness. Lingering, aromatic finish and interestingly floral-smoky. Pi Lo Chun is known for having a very distinct character; you'll find ours to be quite friendly to the palate and savory. Enjoy!

This tea contains a moderate level of caffeine | Steep at 180° for 2 minutes.

Our teabags contain the same high-quality tea as our loose-tea offerings. Their pyramid shape gives the leaves plenty of room to unfurl and infuse, placing more flavor in each cup. Enjoy the superior flavor of gourmet tea with the convenience of a disposable bag.

How long have you been growing tea and what got you started?
At the age of 20 I began to work in tea area. My hometown is a tea area, everybody loves tea. So I also start to do tea which is my first and only job till now.
Can you describe a typical day out in the field?
I go out at about 8am in the morning. It is the best time to pick up tea leaves. But the picking season for the tender pi luo chun is very short. Only in early spring. So the rest of the time I will help for production and do some weeding in the afternoon.
What is your favorite part of growing tea?
I like to see the pi luo chun after production at last. I love the fresh green looking and pleasant aroma of this tea. I do enjoy it after hard work..

Fresh From Origin

Pi Lo Chun translates as 'green snail spring.' The Green Snail refers to the name of the mountains where this fine tea grows. The Spring part was added later by a Machurian Emperor who thought the original name of 'smell so great it will scare you to death' a bit misplaced. Pi Lo Chun is among the more famous of Chinese tea varieties, with a long history of being offered to the Emperor in tribute, along with the yearly payment of taxes. Its output is restricted by a very short harvest season: from the Spring Equinox (end of March) to Clear Brightness (early April).
