Green Snail Spring tea is a Chinese green tea made up of tightly rolled fuzzy buds that resemble spiral shells . While steeping, they unfurl to deliver intricate notes of roasted nuts, soft smokiness and a hop-like crispness. As it fades, a dry white grape character lingers.
The name Biluochun/Pi Luo Chun literally means "green snail spring". It’s called so because it is a green tea that is cropped in early spring and rolled into a tight spiral, resembling snail meat shape.
Biluochun is also grown in Zhejiang, Fujian and Sichuan province. Their leaves are larger and less uniform (may contain yellow leaves). They taste more nutty than fruity and smooth.

Fresh From Origin
Fujian province is one of China's most prolific tea producing areas. These teas account for one-fifth of China's total tea output, and the consistently high quality keeps them in demand. A coastal province (Taiwan lies just to the east, across the Taiwan Strait), Fujian benefits from an excellent climate, combining mild temperatures, abundant rainfall, and a very mountainous terrain. The misty mountain scenery is a mainstay of traditional Chinese art. In fact, the traditional description of Fujian is '8 parts mountain, 1 part water and 1 part farmland.' Fujian has a long history of cultivating tea: over 1,000 years.

The local small-leaf tea trees in Fujian sprout in early spring, with buds that grow quickly and healthily in abundance. New flushes are strong and short with little pekoe, and the tea leaves come to be jade green. These plants have a strong resistance to cold, which is beneficial for green and black teas.
The spring buds contain 3.7% amino acids, 18.5% polyphenol, 12.1% EGCG, and 4% caffeine.
The health benefits of Chinese green tea have been discussed ever since. The effective components in green tea, like TP (tea polyphenol), amino acid, and vitamincan are very helpful to health in many aspects, which has been proved by modern research. E.G.:
