Bi Tan Piao Xue 碧潭飘雪 literally “Snow Falling on Jade-Green Pool”.
Bi Tan Piao Xue
“Snow Falling on Jade-Green Pool” – a beautifully poetic name hides a high-quality green tea from the early spring harvest from Mount Meng Ding which was richly scented with the best autumn jasmine, even in a ratio of 5: 1 (5 kg of jasmine flowers were used per 1 kg of tea).
Jasmine flowers are also abundant in the tea itself (although they no longer add other aromas – they have an aesthetic effect and give meaning to the poetic name of the tea).
The tea is a distinctly jasmine-sweet fruit flavor with a rich aroma that lasts for many pours.
