Tender shoots of tea buds are plucked during the first flush of spring (or late autumn after the monsoons have dried up) and then expertly processed by hand into these tightly rolled pure bud "pearls" of fresh tea.
Our Imperial Grade Bi Luo Chun was grown in the town of Mojiang in Simao. The tea varietal used is a hybrid of Assamica called Yunkang #100.
The taste of the tea is sweet, thick and vibrant. There is some slight astringency that counters the sweetness, lending it depth and complexity.
