Bi Luo Chun, means 'green and curly leaves of spring'. One of its outstanding quality is its fruit aroma, endowed with peach, plum, loquat, and orange that intercropped with it. Another peculiarity is its early cropping. The harvest starts from the Spring Equinox, a Chinese solar term around the beginning of March, when leaf bud is about three quarter inch long. It would need 68,000 - 74,000 tender leaves to produce one pound high-grade tea, making it one of most delicate green tea in China.
