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 continue to be captivated by the character of Batch 67 of the Eco-Cha Tea Club. From the appearance of these dried leaves above to the color of the brewed tea, and of course, most prominently — its flavor profile, it's a unique tea. This is what we most appreciate about the Club — finding something that we truly excited to share. The flavor of this tea is not something we can say we have had before. It really has a lot going on!

Eco-Cha first met Mr. Zhan in 2016, when we smelled tea being roasted beside the historical train station in Shuili — one of our favorite mountain towns in central Taiwan. We learned that he had been transitioning his family tea farm to natural farming methods for several years already. We said that we looked forward to learning more about his work, and hoped to have the chance to procure some tea! Well, some things take time... and 5 years later, here we are — finally able to share a batch of his tea with the Eco-Cha Tea Club!
