Bi Lo Chun

CG741-28

Size

 After the moisture content is lowered in woks, these light grey green leaves with many white tips are hand rolled until half the white hairs on the leaves are broken off.  Too much rubbing makes the teas too light and takes away some of the flavor.  Too little rubbing leaves too many white hairs and makes the tea too strong.  It is a delicate balance getting it just right.  Bi Lo Chun means "green snail spring".  It was harvested early when the leaves are tender.
