Biluochun

 

This Biluochun-style tea from Changxing, also known as Luo Xing, is a good representative of the type: tightly curled leaves release a brothy, vegetal infusion, just barely suggestive of smoke. A very accessible and rewardingly flavourful introduction to fine Chinese greens, with a body of cooked green peas and top notes of tropical fruit. 

For a next-level and unusual experience, try our White Biluochun, made with a cultivar normally used for Anji Bai Cha
