2023 Spring Biluochun (Jade Snail) Green Tea
What is Green Tea?
A timeless favorite, green tea is all about freshness! Unoxidized and bright, green tea is known for its light, clean taste, natural sweetness, enticing scent, and easy-drinking feel.
Biluochun, or "Jade Snail" Green Tea, is a premium variant of green tea known for the small, curled leaves. The flavor is bold and juicy, with strong sweetness.
The tea color is a yellow-ish green, and the leaves are covered in fine hairs, known as "Hao." The resulting tea can sometimes become cloudy with these hairs - a sign of quality.
Biluochun mixes the light, crisp flavor of classic green tea with a stronger, bolder personality. It's a great green tea for all four seasons!
The Perfect Summer Tea
While green tea can be consumed year-round, it is especially prized during summer, because of its lower, cooler steeping temperature and crisp, easy-drinking flavor.
And while it's not a traditional Chinese method, green tea makes for an excellent cold brew or iced tea!
Moganshan is back, at the request of all our tea drinkers!
The first ever green tea on the shop was the 2022 Moganshan Green. I expected that when 2023 came around, people would ask for new and different types of tea, but people loved the Moganshan so much that everyone insisted we get the new 2023 Spring crop as well!
This is a fantastic, balanced green tea that will definitely brighten your day.

VALUE AND QUALITY
Jesse's Teahouse started because Jesse realized the quality and value of the tea directly from the Beijing Tea Market was so much higher than what could be easily found in the States -- and around the world.
Jesse contacted his tea friends, they shipped their best teas to him, and he sends them to you. That's it!
These teas are high quality and can be re-steeped multiple times! Each serving makes between 4-8 cups of tea, so at around $.50 a cup, you get top quality Chinese teas at a price that you can enjoy every day.
NOT JUST TEA, TEA CULTURE
Jesse believes the key to making good tea is to help his Chinese tea friends share not just their best teas, but the best ways to make the teas.
That's why each box comes also comes with an info card that tells you:
- Tea Origin
- Steep Temperature
- Steep Time
- Directions for both teapot steeping and gaiwan steeping
All Jesse’s Teahouse Tea Friends (that’s you now!) also get access to private YouTube videos where Jesse and his Chinese tea friends show you how to make the teas and explain the tea-making process.
The links are on QR codes on the back of the info card included in the tea box.
Don't Forget Your Tea Pets!
In Chinese Gongfu Tea Tradition, Tea Pets accompany you at teatime and you "raise" them by feeding them tea! Check out the tea pets at the bottom of this page.
