Pi Lo Chun
One of the most delicate and famous green teas, Pi Lo Chun is a rare and highly-prized tea that was offered in the Imperial Court. Elegant twisted leaves picked between the end of March and early April are a beautiful deep dark green. The leaves transform during brewing into a lighter green and produce a pale yellow infusion with a green tinge. A fresh, light aroma has hints of chestnuts and a fleeting floral bouquet. Light and smooth, with very little astringency, this is a simple, ethereal delight.
