Teavivre Bi Luo Chun Green Tea

Country of Origin: China
Leaf Appearance: jade green, curled
Ingredients: green tea
Steep time: 3 minutes
Water Temperature: 185 degrees
Preparation Method: glass test tube steeper
Liquor: pale, greenish gold

One surefire way to tell if a Bi Luo Chun is well made is to see how quickly the leaves sink when added to a glass of water. This tea sunk almost immediately. It was actually so fast that I missed it! The taste was incredibly light and sweet with floral notes and a fruity finish. It had just a hint of toasted rice as well. Once the leaves were unfurled they were quite large with lots of visible buds. I still had quite a bit leftover in my sample packet and I didn’t want it to go to waste so I threw them in a mason jar for cold brewing. That worked fairly well but I like my iced Bi Luo Chun to be a bit dirtier. I love, love, love that +TeaVivre provides the exact harvest date. It’s that attention to detailed that makes them one of my go-to’s when it comes to Chinese teas.
