I love Bi Luo Chun but am surprised to find this is a very different Bi Luo Chun! This tea is not delicate! I brewed at 185 , 1 tsp , 2 min, 8 oz. That’s pretty much my standard for most greens but this one seemed quite strong at 2 min. It brews a golden colour. It’s strong , nutty & vegetal . I occasionally pick up pine sap notes.
It definitely does have good Cha qi. This tea has really given me good energy this morning. Because this is a strong green it kind of reminds me somewhat of some of the young shengs. A very strange Bi Luo Chun! I enjoy this tea but can’t say I love it like my Bi Luo Chun from Royal Tea Bay or Teavivre. It certainly is different. I plan on brewing this with a shorter steep time next time.
I think this is a good tea for those who love shengs or dark tea drinkers that want to try out some greens.
