This is so lovely. Very light butter essence together with a vegetal quality… but even nicer is the floral taste that lingers in the finish. It is a bit citrusy, a very sweet, clean taste.
Definitely one of my favorites from Drink T.

“Light, more sweet than buttery, more floral than vegetal. The second steep is more floral than the first. I've neglected this sample for about a year, but it's still good.” Read full tasting note
One of the rarest of green teas, Pi Lo Chun is grown in orchards amongst fruit trees. The sweet fragrance of the fruit blossoms are absorbed by the tea leaves while growing. The short harvest season, from the Spring Equinox (end of March) to the Clear Brightness (early April), also contributes to its exclusivity.
Our Pi Lo Chun uses only the finest, most tender leaves. It’s hand picked and processed in the higher elevations of Taiwan where the tea bushes are shrouded in mist and kept cool by the high mountain air.
Sweet and crisp, this tea is well rounded and will finish with a clean, lingering taste.
