A renowned traditional style of Chinese green tea, these delicate leaves are hand-rolled into tiny spirals. As they unfurl, a complex, layered aroma of sweet spices and poundcake is revealed, providing an intriguing counterpart to the rich nutty and vegetal flavor.


Bi Luo Chun, which means green snail spring, is harvested early in the season, when the leaves are most tender. This lot is from Bing Chang village, near Taihui Lake, in Jiangsu Province. Over 50,000 leaves must be hand-picked to yield 1 lb of finished product. The original name for this tea, Xia Sha Ren Xiang, roughly translates to deathly scary fragrance—referring to this tea’s intense, distinctive character.
