From Verdant Tea

This Bilochun is a pre-Qingming shade-grown harvest picked by the He Family and meticulously hand finished by Mr. He. Every leaf and bud cluster is carefully twisted over consistent heat without the use of machines, yielding a very subtle and complex taste experience with an aftertaste that rivals the finest Dragonwell.

I finally got around to tasting this tea after having it for a couple of months now. In comparison to my old standby Teavivre’s Bi Lo Chun, this version does not disappoint, although it does not necessarily stand miles above Teavivre’s either.

As far as tasting notes, I found this to be light, floral, and sweet with a hint of fruit. There was also a slight hint of astringency, although as usual with Bi Lo Chun it was in no way overpowering. Just a hint at the end of each sip. I found this Bi Lo Chun to be less floral and fruity than Teavivre’s variety, although I will have to taste them side by side to be absolutely sure. Overall I would highly recommend to anyone who enjoys lighter, floral green teas.

Spring 2020 harvest.

Another past its prime green tea that like the Long Jing I ordered, suffered from Covid induced shipping delays. Nevertheless, there were unmistakeable echos of what made this such an outstanding tea in the past. Warm, toasted notes of fennel seed and soybean with a faint sweetness in the finish. Hints of toasted grain and nori. Lacks of the zest and richness this tea usually has but still a good cup.

Flavors: Anise, Fennel Seed, Grain, Seaweed, Soybean
