From Teahouse Kuan Yin

Considered to be one of China’s ten famous teas, our Bi Lo Chun (Green Snail Spring) produces a fragrant, nutty brew which is lightly astringent but mellow. There is a refreshing sweetness to it, with a slightly buttery finish. This tea is from Fujian Province. It is very sensitive to brewing times and temperature, so we recommend infusing it with relatively cool water (~160F) for only 2 minutes.

Bi Lo Chun literally means “Green Snail Spring.” The “snail” is because the leaves are rolled into spirals resembling snails, and “spring” is because it is picked in the early spring, when the buds and young leaves are still small and delicate. There can be 7,000 buds in just one pound of Bi Lo Chun.

This one is another sample from TeaEqualsBliss (which I keep typing as TeaEqualsBills – a subconscious adjustment perhaps?) The scent is a lot like Rishi’s Jade Cloud and there’s a lot of similarity in the taste, too. But this is smoother and has a much prettier taste. There’s something sort of expansive about the taste – it feels very full and relaxing. Chinese greens aren’t really my favorite type of tea but this one is very tasty!

Tea certainly clocks in as the most expensive part of my food bills, at least. _;

Thank you to TeaEqualsBliss for sending this my way!

I recently learned that Teahouse Kuan Yin is in Seattle – I think I may just have to go there and check them out someday soon!

This is very lovely. A very nice buttery flavor to it. Smooth and rich. SWEET! Oh-so-pleasant.

I’m just going to sit here and not say anything more… it might ruin the moment!

Bi Luo Chun certainly caught me off guard the first time I drank it because the flavor was so distinct and powerful; it is not something you expect from a light color green tea.

Sweet, buttery, and nutty! This is super yummy!
I can totally see why this one is labeled “Competition” grade!

I purchased a few ounces of this from Tea House Kuan Yin and it is really good. Their note about the brewing temperature is worth paying attention to. I have been brewing at 180º for two minute and it has been coming out great. The flavor and aroma is excellent, just as stated above.
