“Wonderful green tea, I have had mine for 7 years and am now running out. Smoky peach-apricot flavor. No flavor change over seven years, due to limited access to light and heat.” Read full tasting note
One of China’s tea famous teas, Pi Lo Chun (Bi Luo Chun) comes to us from the imperial tea gardens of Dong Ting Mountain, a mountain in southern Jiangsu Province. There, the tender tea leaves sprout amidst peach, plum and apricot blossoms. Each tender leaf is down-covered and are picked while they are still diminutive shoots not more than 2 centimeters long. They are then pan-fired in several steps to remove the oxidizing enzyme, twist the leaves, and bring forth their natural down. High quality Pi Lo Chun are coated with a fine downiness.
Its white downy sprouts – individually hand-twisted – brews a mildly sweet liquor, with a creaminess and fruitiness that is unique only to this tea.
Water Temperature: 175°, or when very small bubbles appear on the water’s edge.
Brewing Instructions: Use 1 tablespoon (double for a medium sized pot). Rinse tea for 1 second. Discard rinse water. Steep for 1 minute. May be infused multiple times.

I’m very bad at describing teas, but I got this one not long ago at their store in San Francisco’s Chinatown. It’s so yummy! Very light with a nice mouthfeel, it reminds me of the very first ‘nice’ tea I tried, which was a Silver Needle. I don’t know if this is the correct terminology, but it has a nice earthy minerality to it. My second steepings sometimes have a bit of a lemon-y, citrus taste as well. Delicate. Delicious.
Flavors: Floral, Lemon, Mineral
