More information

Legend has it that in the thirty-eighth year of his reign, Kang Xi (1654-1722), Emperor of China, visited Lake Taihu in Jiangsu Province. His governor presented him with a cup of a sublime tea called Xia Sha Ren Xiang, which means "A fragrance that causes fear and trembling".

Fascinated by the taste of the infusion, but unhappy with the name, the Emperor decided to rename it Bi Lo Chun or "Spring of the Jade Snail", a name by which it has been known since then and which holds the status of Imperial Tribute Tea.
