Tea lore says that, after running out of room in her basket, a tea picker placed some freshly plucked leaves between her breasts. Warmed by her body heat, the leaves gave off such a strong aroma that it startled the young woman, which led to this tea being known as Xia Sha Ren Xiang (scary smell/shocking aroma ).
Later, during the Qing dynasty, the emperor renamed this tea Biluochun (green snail spring), which refers to the tea's spiraled leaf style and plucking season.

- 1 heaping teaspoon (about 3 grams) of Biluochun per 6-8 oz serving
