Pi Lo Chun (also known as Green Snail Spring) has a history of more than 1,000 years. It is one of the top ten most famous teas in China and was considered a tribute during the Tang Dynasty. This lot was produced by Mr. Wu Yong Ming from the Dongting Mountain region of Suzhou City, Jiangsu Province, China. Mr. Wu opened his own tea factory in 1993, but his family has been in the tea business for generations. He has specialized in Pi Lo Chun and other luxury green teas for over 40 years.
