Recommended Brewing guide:
We recommend using white ceramic or clear glass cup/teapot. Rinse tea cup and teapot with hot water. Use about 2 grams of tea leaves (1-2 teaspoons) for every 150ml of water. It is best brewed in clean, mineral free water. Steep tea leaves in hot water around 80°c (176°F) for 1 minute for the first and second brewing. Gradually increase steeping time and temperature for subsequent brewing. We do not recommend steeping more than 4 times.

The name Biluochun refers to "Green Snail Spring". It is called so because of its tight rolled up appearance, resembling snail meat, and that it is picked in Spring. Its original name is "Xia Sha Ren Xiang" (吓煞人香) which unfortunately means "scary fragrance". Legends has it that there was once a tea picker who ran out of space in her basket and put
the tea between her breasts instead. The tea, warmed by her body heat, emitted a strong aroma that surprised the local people. And due to the strong aroma, they decided to call it "Scary Fragrance". During the Qing Dynasty, the Kangxi Emperor favored this tea very much, and decided to give it a more elegant name, "Green Snail Spring". Many chinese tea experts regard it very highly. In fact, Zhen Jun (1857 to 1918 A.D.), author of tea encyclopedia Cha Shuo, ranked it first among Chinese green tea.
