Pi Lo Chun “Emperor” green tea is a stuff of legend. So captivated was the Kangxi Emperor (1654 - 1722) by the rich and sweet aroma of these snail-shaped tea leaves that he gave it an elegant name: “green snail spring” or Pi Lo Chun (Biluochon) in Chinese. From that moment forward, this first-class green tea rose to the top as the emperor’s most favored drink.
But Pi Lo Chun’s “scary fragrance” should serve as your cue as more health goodies waiting for you. Top-of-the-line, this green tea boasts of untold health benefits. Perhaps, it’s the secret why Emperor Kangxi (Qing dynasty) is China’s longest-reigning monarch — ruling the country for 61 years. The good news is Pi Lo Chun can be your secret to health and long life too. Read on.
