From teasenz

Mellow, sweet with hints of apricot. A premium Biluochun tea from Yunnan. Even more curly and pleasing to the eye than the original from Dongting Mountain. The highest grade available.

Biluochun is “large leaf” varietal tea ancient tea trees from Yunnan. We present you a premium grade biluochun grown and processed in the holy province of tea: Yunnan. It’s referred to as Biluochun (‘snail spring’) because of distinctive long twisted leaves resembling a snail house. Compared to the original Biluochun from Dongting, this Yunnan version has a more mellow fruity flavor and with hints of apricot fragnance that stays bright and clear until the last brew.

I’m a sucker for Bi Lo Chun teas, and the fragrance when I opened this sample packet from Teasenz was heavenly – buttery, vegetal, savoury…

I steeped it at 80C water for 3 mintes as per the recommended instructions. When I pulled the infuser out from the teapot, the leaf smelled vegetal and heavenly.

However, the tea was quite bitter at first sip – when it hits the tongue, there’s a chemical tang that I’m not very happy with. Mid-sip it’s nice and vegetal, and there’s a surprisingly delightful grassy note in the aftertaste, but the initial bitter jolt when it hits the tongue is unpleasant.

I suspect that I will really need a scale to serve this tea properly, as Teasenz’s instructions specify gram weight per cup rather than volume (teaspoons) per cup. Considering I wasn’t too thrilled with their Lychee Black yesterday, I’m chalking the whole thing up to user error on my end.

Now… what do you guys recommend in terms of cheap, user-friendly digital scales?
