From Golden Moon Tea

Retailing for over $200/lb, Golden Bi Lo is a true treasure to be tasted. Gorgeous golden tips are hand rolled in a hot wok into tiny curls that have a sweet, toasty flavor with a subtle hint of Cocoa in the finish. Keep your steeping time short (1 min) and you can easily get 6 full flavored cups of tea out of one serving.

How can a tea be so delicate and so robust at the same time? Gorgeous deep molasses flavor that tastes rich steep after steep. I’m on number 4 right now and it’s so incredibly flavorful! At the same time, it’s so smooth and … not tannic or astringent. A dark sweetness is the overwhelming flavor.

So, so impressed. I think this is my favorite tea so far from the Golden Moon insiders tea club!

Well, hello my new friend. How have I never run into this tea before? Or any bi luo? I think this is what I’m craving when I want green tea. This tastes like a dragon well grassy base with notes of…burnt sugar? And a pervasive light woodiness. Even a hint of an oolongy butteriness. I fear it will launch yet another in-depth investigation through all the bi luos I can get my hands on, much as milk oolong did to me. Any advice on high (or low) priorities would be very much appreciated!

oh man, i LOVE bi luo chun. it’s my favorite style of green tea bar none. yay!

ifjuly

oh, and my favorite one last year was verdant’s laoshan bilochun. who knows how it’ll be this year—these things can vary so—but it blew my mind all summer last year, hot and cold (soooo good cold steeped!).

Thanks! Very excited to try that one…will absolutely look out for it. I can’t remember how this stuff ended up on my wish list, but heck, it was probably from one of your notes. It completely redeemed the order that was driven by the far less successful coconut pouchong. Just threw this one it since it was sitting there on the wish list…so (probably) thanks for that too!

Humm…..Very nice. I believe this was supposed to be the May entry in the Single Leaf Club although I received it at the same time as their White Cloud in June.

The fresh leaves smell wonderful! I kept my nose tucked into the packet for a while to breath it in. A sweet citrus with just a hint of floral. I don’t usually like strongly scented tea leaves but this one is awesome. The fresh leaves also look gorgeous.

I initially followed the recommended brewing of 1 minute at 212. This was good, but after a sip I wondered if it would be better with an additional minute. Two minutes was perfect. No bitterness, just nicely full flavored.

Once brewed, their is just a hint of the fresh tea scent. The tea has a nice toasty flavor as mentioned in the Golden Moon tasting notes. A small hint of citrus for me. Not sure about the cocoa – still thinking about that one. Very nice, though. Highly recommended.

ETA: As the tea cooled, the citrus flavor that I noticed in the fresh tea leave scent became more pronounced. I really enjoyed this tea and look forward to trying a resteep.

This is the best tea I have ever had. This tea has an amazing aroma, dry right out of the container. It has a beautiful hue. Once you have made a cup, the aroma of the steeped leaves is still of full smoky potency. This tea has an amazing, full bodied flavor. A sweet finish, with a complex flavor. I will post a followup or two because I want to see what future cups are like. This first cup is strong, not delicate at all but complex. No wonder this stuff is so expensive.
