This fine example of a wonderful Sweet Pi Lo Chun catches your eye with its dark green leaves and many little white buds.
The light green, almost yellow, very bright infusion surprises the taste buds with finely tart and sweet nuances and finishes off with light floral notes.
Harvested by hand between April and May only the freshest leaf, the bud and two to three youngest leaves are picked and processed.
The name Pi Lo Chun translates:
Pi: The colour of the tea (green like emerald)
Lo: The shape of the leaves (small snails)
Chun: Spring (harvest time)
