Bi Luo Chun Sanxia Loose Leaf Green Tea

The name Bi Luo Chun literally means "Green Snail Spring" in Chinese. According to a Qing Dynasty chronicle, it is the Emperor Kangxi who gave this name to this gracious spring green tea, as the tightly rolled spiral shape (Chinese Bi Luo Chun) reminded him of a snail. 

TR's Bi Luo Chun Sanxia Green Tea is the Taiwanese cousin of the continental Chinese Bi Luo Chun. The tea comes from Sanxia district, a renowned region for its ideal terroir for tea cultivation in Taiwan. It was one of the areas that many Chinese tea masters immigrated after Taiwan was returned from Japanese colonial government in 1945 and it is now well known for its fine green tea production such as Bi Luo Chun and Long Jing green tea. 

It is a truly unique tea made of a rare cultivar called "Qing Xin Gan Zai" by employing the traditional Chinese method of making Bi Luo Chun. The noble characteristic of the cultivar, the unique terroir and the art of the tea making have been reflected in its highly elegant and graceful flavours and aromas. The liquor offers delicately sweet, floral and mild, delicate cooked vegetal notes. 

An absolute must add to your green tea collection! We are confident that our Bi Luo Chun Sanxia will lead your palate to another level of green tea appreciation. Highly recommended to the lovers of Baozhong oolong tea as well.

A home-brewed quality coffee is far less expensive than cafes

...Whilst the purse strings may need to tighten, a better quality home-brewed coffee or tea is still far less expensive than buying individual drinks on the go. Over the last few years, many have taken the opportunity to improve their home brewing skills, and now with the equipment and know-how to recreate that authentic coffee shop experience from home, are enjoying cheaper quality coffees. With cafe coffees costing anything from £2.50-4.00 each, and with a bag of 250g quality coffee costing between £7.00-12.50 and providing you with enough to achieve up to 15-35 brews per bag (depending on brew method and strength preferences), the savings and better quality coffee are both there to be enjoyed.

If this isn't you, there really is no better time to start, and better yet, at GUSTATORY you’ll find plenty of affordable options from our huge range of quality independent roasters and brands from across UK, Europe and North America to support you in doing just that. With it easy to browse and shop for coffee on the marketplace or subscribe to a coffee subscription, it also won't be long until you discover a new favourite. All marketplace purchases are shipped direct for product freshness, with all subscriptions roasted fresh for us as part of our monthly delivery schedules.
