Pure Bud Bi Luo Chun Yunnan Black tea * Spring 2015

This exquisite black tea is made from first flush March harvest. Simao area pure bud material. Picked when the tea is still just tender little buds, the tea is processed with great care to produce this lovely rolled Bi Luo Chun Black tea.
The taste is potent but smooth with hints of sugarcane and milk chocolate!
For best results we recommend using about 4 to 5 grams per 100ml of water when brewing.
Spring 2015 harvest!

Thank you to Nicole for giving me a sample of this tea (Ya’ll should probably get used to that for the next week or so as I review all of the teas she sent me ).

I enjoyed this tea this afternoon while my son was finishing up his nap before we went to pick up my daughter from school. I guilty pleasured this tea by enjoying it with some shortbread cookies. And what a fantastic pairing. The tea itself is pretty solid. Nothing that is a game changer but a really nice drinking tea.

I have to say, more than any tasting notes I picked up from this (of which were some malty tones and bright woodsy notes) this tea actually gave me a feeling more than anything. On the drive to get my daughter, it was such a clear headed, peacefulness. I wanted to give graduation speeches on the importance of kindness and gentleness. I had thoughts of continually teaching my children the power of spreading happy selflessness.

Sounds goofy, sure. But I felt and thought these things and I feel very certain the tea helped my mind achieve this very serene and peaceful sensation from which I am still coming down from. That works for me.

I love this tea. And yes, it goes very well with shortbread. :)

Your clear headed feelings and thoughts from the tea don’t sound goofy at all. Makes me want to brew some.

Can’t imagine how I haven’t reviewed this yet. It’s sweet and deep and savory at the same time. Longer steepings bring in that not unpleasant sour note along with a deeper savory nature. Maybe a little ash in the background. And I am not buying more tea this year. Which makes me really sad to note tonight that my supply of this is getting dangerously low.

Having tea with all the pets tonight and using a repaired pot. I didn’t get all the crack sealed, apparently, as it is still leaking a bit. I don’t like the JB Weld repair much since it is shiny. But, it’s better than never using this pot. Maybe if I get back out to Seattle some time, the Market Spice Tea shop will have another one that might not be cracked. :)

I must confess I bought this tea b/c I absolutely love how it looks. I’m a sucker for the bi luo chun rolled tea but last year I had the green version of this tea and it was way too green for me :) Who would have guessed. So, I brewed this ‘warrior’ style, ~5-6g in 95ml of water with short steeps. Like I would brew a puerh! The resulting liquor is POTENT, BRUTAL and Tasty, it reminds me vaguely of coffee, as it has a weight to it.

Proper review time:
Dry Leaves: Smell of milk chocolate
Wet Leaves: Cacao and Dian Hong smell.

Taste: Oh my, the first infusion have a really clear cacao after-taste, after a couple of infusion that aftertaste become dominant in the taste too. The texture is basically the same as heavy cream or jam :) As state earlier, it’s a tea to be drunk really slowly, I feel it going down into my system very clearely, and like coffee, I feel a ‘returning flavor/weight’.

Anyway, a very good tea. Drink it slowly, BREW IT HARD

ps: Is there anything I don’t brew hard!! :)

Flavors: Cacao, Malt
