Green Organic: Pi Lo Chin (Spring Snail)

Green Organic: Pi Lo Chin (Spring Snail)

from 4.00

One of China’s Top 10 famous teas, Pi Lo Chin means Spring Green Snail. Delicate small downy leaves are plucked once a year in Mar-April. Often the tea bushes are grown in between plum, peach and apricot trees, resulting in a delicious fruity flavor and subtle floral fragrance. Once picked, the leaves are pan-fried to stop fermentation (oxidation) and the leaves are rolled into little coil shapes resembling tiny snails. Pi Lo Chin is not very common to find but a treat to have in one’s tea collection.

Tea is Personal:  Once you try the recommended steeping instructions on the package, I invite you to play with the quantity of
tea and the length of the steep time to find your desired brew strength. Use a wide mouth infuser to let your tea dance!  Varying
the water temperature isn't recommended, as water that is too hot will over-extract the bitter components of tea, while water that is too cool might not fully draw out the aromas and flavors of tea.
