Just got this tea today. Fresh 2010 early spring crop (pre Qing Ming 2010). I was really interrested in this tea, because it is also called “room filled with fragrance”. Thought that this could be something similar to Bi Luo Chun. And you know what? It’s even better. At least in my opinion. This one is AAA grade and costs not even a half of AAA grade Bi Luo Chun. When opening the bag, the smell popped out and filled the room…ok, the name fits. The leafs are very nice, dark green, curled like small snakes (again..like bi luo chun but without the silvery tips). The processing is great, the leaves are alomst even in size. Now the local store advice to steep it for like 15 secs. Thought that this is quite short, so i let it for 35 sec., than later 45 seconds. I think 45-50 is great for this tea. The liqour was creamy had a standard light yellowish-green colour. Smelled realy nice. But the ultimate weapon is it’s taste. It’s so deep – with many layers. It’s a bit sweet with lot of fruity and flowerly aroma. It’s always a pleasure if the beverage goes through your mouth. That’s how a nice spring tea should taste like. Go get it if you see it somewhere. I’ll go and make some more steeps :)
