From Wang Family Tea

Bi Lu Xi is loacted in Renai Township(仁愛鄉), on Lishan Mountain.

Tea leaves are big and beautiful, semicircular bright green pearls. Once rinsed, this tea exhibits the aroma of sweet peaches.

The first round of brewing produces a tea with the flavor of gardenias, sweet mung bean paste, and a hint of peach. This tea is already developing a strong and long lasting huigan. The second round has a rich orchid aroma, combined with a scent of the high mountain forest. Especially in an empty cup, a light sugar fragrance is retained and lingers for many monents. The huigan has become even more obvious. In the third round of brewing, the tea soup has become incredibly soft. The distinct orchid fragrance of the Qing Xin Oolong cultivar is on full display. There is also a bit of minerality, woodsiness, and fruit on the plate.

Quick note.

I got this at the beginning of the year as a birthday present. Brewing 5 grams up in 5 oz vessel Gong Fu, I started out with a rinse of 15 sec, then brewed it 3 oz at 20 sec, then 5 oz at 25, 30, 25, 45, 55, 75, and onto losing cout going into minutes.

The rinse had an interesting hibiscus cream note that was really nice, and lots coming from the aroma. The tea’s texture is very soft with a very clean profile. The first brew was floral, creamy, vegetal, and smooth reminding me of lilies and peach skins. 3rd and 4th brews had more fruitiness, with a little bit of pineapple among hyacinth, and oddly enough, hibiscus in an extremely green body. Thick and viscous, but soft. The mung bean vegetal taste was fairly prominent, but complimented the floral and fruity notes in a fresh mix, occasionally giving off a vanilla-orchid note. The later notes are a little stemmy or spriggy, but not really woodsy. If it is woodsy, it’s kind of like fresh bamboo.

Overall, a really pleasing Lishan I’m glad I got to try. It’s very fresh and forgiving….and long lasting. There are others from Wang Family Tea that I liked a little bit more than this one, especially in terms of their Shanlinxi’s, but the huigan is incredible. This is the kind of tea I’m going to take my time with. There were elements of this that made me think of a Dayuling, especially with some of the rose notes I got midway through, but it was overall thicker.

Rating is between 85-95. It’s high quality for sure that leans more in the 90’s. Price is the main thing keeping me from rating it higher, though this tea might grow on me like it’s long lasting after taste.
