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 Bi Luo 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 floral, buttery notes and an overriding elegance and complexity.
