Bi Luo Chun Tea Early Spring Harvest | Eco-Cha Teas
Freshly picked early spring Bi Luo Chun Tea is here!
We added Bi Luo Chun Green Tea to our menu just last September and it has gotten a great response. So we planned ahead this year, and took a trip up northern Taiwan to visit the farms and factory as soon as the spring harvest season began to get more. The most prized Bi Luo Chun Green Tea is harvested at the beginning of the spring growing season, which continues through April. This batch is from the first week of early spring harvest.
The weather is still cool enough that the leaves grow a bit more slowly, resulting in both a delicate complexity as well as full-bodied character. The warmer it gets, the faster the leaves grow, changing their composition. This batch brews a fresh green aroma that is smooth and substantial on the palate, with delicate notes of arugula. It has a full-bodied, yet clean and refreshing finish.
Even if you are a dedicated Oolong fan like us, we encourage you to try this truly satisfying Green Tea. You'll be pleasantly surprised (as we were)!

We can see in the photo of the dried leaves above that they were hand-plucked while still very young and tender. This is evident not only by the size of the leaves, but also in the protective fur that is still on the whitish colored leaf buds. It is this stage of leaf growth, along with the heirloom cultivar of tea tree that give Bi Luo Chun its distinctive character among Green Teas — especially when it is from the first flush of spring tea buds!
