Bi Luo Chun "Green Spring Snail" has a rich history of over 1,000 years. Made using only the highest grade shoots and leaf tips, from Fujian China – one of the best tea growing climates in the world. Processed and harvested entirely by hand, this delicate, artisan green tea has been grown in close proximity to fruit trees, giving it an extraordinarily fruity flavour that will be remembered long after your cup is empty.
