The Qingming festival (5 April) marks the start of the spring harvest. This tea was plucked before the festival, and is particularly rare. Emperor Kangxi named this tea Bi Luo Chun, or jade spiral, after its leaves, which are an intense green colour and are rolled into small spirals.
This superb first flush tea from China is smooth and sweet, and boasts powerful floral notes which combine with fresh gourmet fragrances. A highly complex tea.
To deploy all the aromatic complexity, the leaves should be infused multiple times with the traditionnal chinese method, the Gong Fu Cha.
