Western Hill is known for its Biluochun, one of the best green teas in the country. The tea has a prominent, refreshing fragrance, with a smooth taste.

Biluochun literally means "emerald spiral spring". The story goes that the tea was given its name by Emperor Kangxi of the Qing Dynasty, when he visited Suzhou to investigate the people's living conditions.
