Legend

According to legend, a nun was traveling up the mountain and picked a few tea leaves. After the tea was brewed, the fragrance was fragrant, and he blurted out that it was "fragrant and scary", so the locals called this tea "fragrant and scary". In the Kangxi period of the Qing Dynasty, the Emperor Kangxi tasted this famous tea with green color and curly snails during his inspection, which was much appreciated, but he felt that "scaring fragrant" had an inelegant name, so he named "Bi luo chun". The origin of the name of this tea is not only given by the Emperor Kangxi when he visited the Taihu Lake, but also the legend that Biluochun had the tea name in the Ming Dynasty. There is also a clever explanation that the color is green and curly like snail. Collected from these characteristics of Biluo Peak, it is named Biluochun.
