I tried out this other ebay seller for this biluochun. It was listed as organic & spring 2015 on the ebay listing but it was shipped in a basic ziplock pkg I’ve seen other Ebay sellers use. It only had Bi Luo Chun handwritten on the pkg. Nothing else. It doesn’t confirm that this is organic or 2015 but it does seem pretty fresh when I smelled the dry leaves.
It does have that fruity, mossy, sweet taste I love with Bi Luo Chun teas but it didn’t seem as intense as I remember last year tea (from a different seller). There are so many factors that can play a part in this: my allergies, how I’m feeling, my mood or how I brewed it, where it’s grown, the harvesting & processing. Another reason it may not seem as intense as last year’s harvests is I’ve got more discriminating tastes. When I try a Bi Luo Chun I have certain expectations now. Last year it was entirely new to me to try a fresh harvest Bi Luo Chun.
So overall, I’m happy with this Bi Luo Chun. I will probably get some other 2015 harvests to compare.
