Description

Jade Snail Spring (or Bi Luo Chun) is a Chinese green tea variety that has been pan fried, then tightly rolled into buds that resemble spiral shells, or the scroll of a violin. The dry leaf is wonderfully fragrant, with a smoky, floral, brightness. While steeping, the tightly rolled leaves unfurl right before your eyes, and deliver intricate notes of floral sweetness, soft smokiness and a hops-like crispness. Try steeping our Jade Snail Spring multiple times, smokiness and a dry white grape character lingers. Jade Snail Spring is an excellent, high quality Chinese variety.

I wouldn't say this is of the highest order of green teas, the bitterness that appears is not something I generally experience with highest quality greens. I do not enjoy bitterness in my teas, I do very much to avoid it. This tea isn't a bad tea, it's just finicky.

This tea is exactly as described above - and an incredible bargain for the price. It tastes only half as smoky as gunpowder tea, and so lets more of the green tea aroma through, resulting in a softer, well balanced cup. Thoroughly enjoyable.
