Description

The Qingming festival (5 April) marks the start of the spring harvest. This tea was plucked before the festival, and is particularly rare. Emperor Kangxi named this tea BiLuo Chun, or jade spiral, after its leaves, which are an intense green colour and are rolled into small spirals.

A spring green tea with a sophisticated vegetal bouquet, accented with fruity floral notes and an overriding elegance and complexity.

Grands Crus: savour the exceptional

Rare and ephemeral, teas identified as Grands Crus by Palais des Thés are the result of alchemy between a tea plant variety, its terroir and the talent of an artisan grower. Meticulously plucked, processed and sourced in the most respected tea gardens, our Grands Crus unveil unique flavours that reflect the refinement of their origins.
