WHAT IT IS This tea consists of the youngest tea leaves picked in early spring, only a few days a year. Each leaf is carefully picked by hand, dried and coiled into a unique curled shape, for ease of storage and transportation. It is so delicate and tender that it takes some 15,000 tea shoots to produce just one kilogram of this tea.

FLAVOR NOTES Produced from the finest young tea shoots, Pi Lo Chun is characterized by a fresh, floral, slightly sweet taste. Because these tea bushes are planted near peach, plum or apricot trees, they also absorb the fragrance of their blossoms. This fragrance is locked in when the leaves are slightly pan-roasted.
