Bi Luo Chun is known as one of the top green teas in Chinese history. Once it was called 吓煞人香 (Xia Sha Ren Xiang, lit. frightening fragrant) by local people to describe its strong fruity aroma. The dry Bi Luo Chun tea leaf is covered with white hair and curls like a snail, which is where the Luo (螺, snail) in its name comes from. Bi Luo Chun is a very delicate tea. Since the tea buds and leaves are very young, the water temperature should never exceed 185 ℉/85 ℃ when brewing, and 上投法 (Shang Tou Fa, lit. top throw, throwing tea on top of the hot water instead of pouring water on the tea) is always recommended for Bi Luo Chun. With a fruity and floral aroma, the tea liquor delivers a mellow and long-lasting sweet taste.
