A very tasty Bi Luo Chun with elements of grass, sugar snap peas, flowers and honeysuckle. Excellent quality leaves complete with silver haired tips and a pungent aroma.

Bi Luo Chun always gives me a tea buzz :)

Preparation
165 °F / 73 °C 2 min, 30 sec

Yeah, one of my favorite greens. I find the white bi lou chun to be a bit tough to brew right. have to go really cool. it turns astringant/bitter very easily.

I know what you mean, one day it can be too strong and the next day it’s mellow. I might have a go at brewing the Chinese way according to Teavivre. It’s towards the bottom of the page, seen similar instructions for brewing Long Jing too. Must try it, maybe tomorrow.

I am so sad that I have never experienced a tea buzz or a tea high. I suspect it has to do with the fact that I don’t react to caffeine, but it still makes me sad. You are lucky.

Starfleet, the caffeine conveys the l-theanine to the brain but doesn’t cause the tea high. You never know what tea will effect you. Fresher, pure tea is a better bet and many people say white, some green and oolong tea’s give a buzz ( or sense of well-being). For me, it’s a certain white tea and puerh. Most puerhs make me feel good and all fresh sourced tea’s.

Ah, thanks, that was informative! I guess I’ll have to keep trying then.

The only tea that makes me tea drunk/high are pungent greens. If I steep it a little stronger than recommended and drink two pots in quick succession it makes me feel very relaxed and happy and my eyes feel warm and tired. Also get a little light headed sometimes. Keep trying Starfevre you will never know when it may work for you. :)

Profile

Bio

I’m 26 years old from Leicester, England named Kayleigh. I have a wonderful husband called Richard whom I am very lucky to have in my life.

I started off many years ago drinking herbal and fruit teas which over time peaked my interest in trying new types. Eventually I began to import and sample many different teas and cultures which I still do today. My life goal is to try as many teas and ways of having tea as possible.

Tea wise my cravings change constantly from pu erh one month to jasmine green to the next and so on.

I adore cats and have four of my own called Honey, Cassie, Mr Soots and Ivory.

I also have two fish tanks which thankfully my cats have no interest in. They house an array of tropical fish and shrimp.

I am a proud vegetarian and have been for the majority of my life. When I say vegetarian I mean just that as well, no fish or seafood, no chicken now and again, no animal products such as gelatine and cochineal.

I also enjoy watching Japanese Anime and horror films.

I am always up for tea swaps so if you see anything in my virtual cupboard then please contact me.

A short list to help swapping with me easier though honestly I am not fussy and am willing to try anything. Plus the notes below are usually, sometimes I love a tea that has an ingredient I tend to dislike and other times I hate a tea that I thought I would love.

Likes: Any fruit but especially melon and orange, vanilla, all tea types (black, green, white etc), nuts (any), flowers, ginger, chai.

Dislikes: Licorice, aniseed, clove, eucalyptus, lavender.
