I was so excited to try this Bi Luo Chun but it was not quite what I was expecting.

Dry the leaves smelled a bit fruity , a bit faint- just a whiff.

It brewed up with lots of colour – a nice amber colour. The elements that make me love Bi Luo Chun were all there. It has a sweet mossy taste with fruity notes ; however it wasn’t very strong. It was just too light (barely there ) for me. I didn’t increase the brew time because I didn’t want this to go bitter. It actually wasn’t bitter for me, one of the things I was a bit worried about.

In my opinion Bi Luo Chun is one of those teas that is at it’s best in the first 6 months or so. This is still a good quality Bi Luo Chun ( I see it was picked in Spring 2014 ) and if I had enough of it I would double the amount of tea in brewing to bring out more flavour.

I used gong fu brewing for this so I’ve still got enough to try again with a bit longer steep.

Flavors: Fruity, Sweet

Green teas are my favourite teas but I also enjoy: white, some herbal,rooibos, raw pu’erh, light oolongs, a little bit of black , and a little bit of ripe pu’erh. I have moved away from artificial flavourings and there’s hardly anything left in my cabinet with artificial flavouring or colours. It is mostly straight teas or tea blends.
