Origin: Sanxia, Taipeh

Without any questions, Suzhou Dongting Lake in China is the origin of this tea. Because of the Chinese immigrants, the tea processing technique was brought to Taiwan. Until nowadays, the North of Taiwan - Sanxia - has become home of this Biluochun since over 200 years. During the colonial time under the Japanese (1919 - 1949), green tea experienced their lowest tide. Thanks again to immigrants leaving China after the war and the Japanese pullout from Taiwan in 1949, it came that the Chinese were missing the taste from home - Longjing and Biluochun. And so the revival time of green tea production began. This tea has become more than a mere replacement of Biluochun. Despite being originally drunken as "just a replacement”, this Biluochun tastes a bit heavier than its Chinese counterpart, while being very elegant, creamy and easily yielding 4 or more infusions.
