Look how gorgeous this tea is! Even the wet leaves look lovely: long, spindly, bright green things. What a delight! The color of the tea is very light, with the taste being smooth, buttery and slightly fruity. One of the more interesting greens I’ve tried, I think you will especially enjoy it if you are a fan of the more complex tasting Darjeelings.
Pi Lo Chun
Hand picked leaves (unopened bud and one leaf) absorb the aroma from the blossoming fruit trees that surround these tea bushes in the Fujian province of China. Pi Lo Chun’s delicate and tiny spiral shaped leaves offer a crisp, slightly sweet flavour and buttery aftertaste.
