This tea is listed as white but it appears from the YS description to really be a green. I was curious how a white bi luo chun is compared to a green bi luo chun. Well, there’s really not much difference which is another reason why I believe this is just really a green tea. The description at YS website says it’s a cross between the classic Jiangsu Bi Luo Chun and the Yunnan large leaf varietal yielding a delicate Bi Luo Chun that can grow in cooler altitude conditions.
I brewed this tea Western style this morning. Nothing fancy and it’s delicious. It has a chestnut sweetness along with mossy flavour . There’s also a bit of fruit I’m tasting. It is quite delicate, not a strong green tea but still lots of flavour. This is a very good tea. I am now tempted to order the 2015 Spring version of this.
Thanks Allan for the sample.
