Bi Luo Chun
Bi Luo Chun is a green tea leaves and is one of the world’s most highly sought after teas. It is slightly sweet, with a velvet yellowish colour and a lingering, buttery finish that is sure to delight any tea lover. Also expect to taste slight fruity undertones, which make this tea something quite unique.
This green tea is grown and cultivated high in the mountains – it carries high levels of antioxidants that are thought to lower the risk of certain cancers. These natural chemicals have far-reaching benefits for the body, making it a perfect addition to any healthy lifestyle. Not only this, there is evidence to suggest that Bi Luo Chun promotes good skin and reduces the effects of ageing. The tea’s high levels of vitamin C, fluoride and calcium help to promote healthy teeth and bones.
Hint: For the best brew, use two teaspoons per cup. Heat water until it almost reaches boiling point and let it steep for two to three minutes to bring out the flavour. The best thing about this tea is that it can be used for multiple infusions.
Enjoy this tea hot and either with a meal or on its own.
