This tea has an interesting name, Bi Luo Chun translates to Green Snail Spring, due to the shape of its processed tightly rolled spiral shaped tea leaf, resembles tiny shell of a snail. Bi Luo Chun is a pan-fried tea unique to the Jiangsu Province, it is simple to brew, and the refreshing clean taste makes it a very popular Green tea.
