20 Tasting Notes
Has a strong umami character with green veg, grass, and corn notes. There is also a scent of burnt rubber in the gaiwan. Has a very light sweetness that decreases with each steeping. Brewing Gong Fu style, it’s good for 4-6 infusions, starting with 15 sec and increasing the time from there. Not sure about the quality of this tea compared to any other Bi Luo Chun. Dry leaves are almost brown and turn a very pale green after brewing. It’s a nice tea that can be brewed many different ways but one that I have to be in just the right mood for.
Flavors: Corn Husk, Grass, Smoke, Sweet, Umami
I don’t have much to add to the notes that are already here except for the fact that no one has mentioned stonefruit, which seems quite obvious to me. I get about 8-10 good steeps with these brewing parameters and start adding more time toward the end to stretch it a bit further. Love this tea every time I drink it.
