The Chinese have been drinking tea for more than 4,700 years, and it has become a deep spiritual existence with deep cultural connotations. As the saying goes, “Cultivation of the heart and nature is all in this tea pot, no matter how big the world is.”
East China’s Jiangsu province has been a sacred place for tea production since ancient times, and its tea-drinking style is outstanding.
Bi Luo Chun, a famous green tea in Jiangsu, and one of the top 10 famous tea brands in China, was first given its name by Qing Dynasty (1644-1911) emperor Kangxi during his southern tour.
The shape of its leaves is curled like snail, meaning luo in Chinese, and the tea has been regarded as representative of traditional Chinese curly tea.
