Pi Luo Chun Green Tea
Brew with water at 75 to 80 degrees and brew for 2 to 3 minutes, be careful not to over infuse
Pi Luo Chun is a Green Tea from Hunan province, China. Translated, its name means “Spring Green Snail”. This peculiar term refers to a centuries-old story involving Emperor Kang Xi, who believed that the leaves resembled tiny green snails.
Of course, these beautiful, long, twisted leaves offer more than just that. When brewed, they provide a delicate aroma and a distinctly buttery character. What’s more, when enjoyed as part of a healthy and active lifestyle, Pi Luo Chun Green Tea supports one’s wellbeing.
The latest scientific research indicates that its frequent consumption can improve life in small yet significant ways. Indeed, it can, among other qualities, improve cardiovascular health, promote weight loss and reduce the risks of developing type-2 diabetes.
About Hunan Province
Our Pi Luo Chun Green Tea is but one of dozens of beverages originating from the Chinese Hunan province. This area borders Guangxi to the southwest, Guizhou to the west, Hubei to the north and Jiangxi to the east. Despite being a landlocked province, Hunan boasts near-perfect climatic conditions well-suited to growing outstanding Tea.
There are three prime locations for growing Tea in Hunan: Dongting Lake, Heng Mountain and Shao Mountain. Each region tends to be warm and temperate for much of the year. Its most famous Teas are Junshan Yinzhen (Silver Needles), Dark Black Brick Tea, Huang Ya (a Yellow Tea) and Mao Jian Hunan Green Tea. Additionally, there is, of course, Pi Luo Chun.
