Biluochun, also known as "frightening people" in ancient times, is famous for its extraordinaryness. Biluochun has a history of more than one thousand years. Every year when spring comes, it is a spring flavor that countless tea lovers look forward to and must taste.
Since then, Biluochun has become famous all over the world and became the tribute tea of the Qing court.
"Taihu Lake Preparation" also contains, "Tea comes from the east and west mountains, and the one from the east mountain wins. There is a kind of Biluochun, which is commonly called "Biluochun". .”
Suzhou Dongting Biluochun, as its name suggests, the authentic Biluochun is produced in Dongting, which is Dongting Mountain next to Taihu Lake. Dongting Mountain is divided into Dongshan and Xishan. Dongshan extends into Taihu Peninsula, and Xishan is the largest island on Taihu Lake. Looking at each other, Biluochun is best produced in Dongting Dongshan. It has been passed down since the Tang and Song Dynasties. In addition to its unique planting method, manpower-intensive picking, picking and frying, this cup of authentic Dongting Biluochun is very precious. Geographical advantages, harmonious people, are indispensable, and there is a folk saying: "99% of people can't drink it". For 60,000-80,000 buds to get a pound of Biluochun tea, the fresh leaves of the tea picked before tomorrow are extremely delicate, and the yield is even rarer. It is very rare to get a cup to taste.
Today Tongxinshe Teahouse personally came to Suzhou Dongting Mountain to find local tea farmers to pick and make authentic Mingqian Dongting Biluochun to share with tea friends.
Biluochun mainly picks spring tea shoots. Before the Ming Dynasty, Biluochun used the fresh tea leaves picked before the Qingming Festival as raw materials. The frying was completed on the same day. , Delicious, Biluochun's shape is very distinctive, known by local tea farmers as "full of hair, copper wire, bee legs, silver and green hidden green". One-bud-one-leaf Biluochun tea before Ming Dynasty is made from the fresh leaves of one-bud and one-leaf tea picked before Qingming. The dry tea is fragrant, sweet and sweet, and has multiple aromas. People can't help but taste it carefully. After adding water and pouring the tea leaves, you can smell the fragrance of flowers and fruits. Flying, the pekoe of the tea soup is obvious, the taste is sweet and smooth, the fragrance of flowers and fruits is consistent, and the sweetness is fresh and refreshing.
Outside the city of Gusu is not only the Hanshan Temple, but also the vast Taihu Lake, which is 800 miles away. Dongshan Peninsula stretches above Taihu Lake, thus becoming the core production area of Biluochun. The unique climate of Taihu Lake is warm and humid, with four distinct seasons, and the slightly acidic red soil cultivates the natural freshness bestowed by the creator. : "Tea gardens should not be mixed with evil trees. Only osmanthus, plum, magnolia, magnolia, rose, pines, green bamboos and the like are planted in between, which are enough to cover the frost and snow and shade the autumn sun."
The tea garden that Tongxinshe Teahouse went to today is in the Biluochun Tea Farm on Dongshan Mountain. The tea farm follows the ancient method of planting, where the generous loquats, strong citrus, tall branches and leaves cover the Biluochun small-leaved species, scattered and inter-planted, there is no neat tea ridge, and it is almost in a semi-wild state. The diffuse reflection effect of the natural barrier, coupled with the connection of the roots, stems and leaf veins of fruit trees, the aromatic substances flow in the air, and the tea absorbs the fruity fragrance, which makes Biluochun inherently exude floral and fruity fragrance, which is called "scaring fragrance" by local people. It comes from the edification of fruit trees. After thousands of years of evolution, Biluochun has adapted to the water, soil and climate here. The components of fresh leaves and endoplasm have changed. The subtle mixture of ingredients has faithfully recorded the excellent tea quality of Biluochun.
