Brewing Suggestions
 
2021 harvest.

This is one of the finest and most anticipated green teas from each new spring crop. This year harvest demonstrates the trademark fragrance, distinctive flavor, and exquisite silver-furred leaves of a classic Bi Luo Chun.

Dark green leaves, tightly curled, covered in silver white fur. Elegant, sweet and subtle, pale infusion with a silky soft, juicy mouthfeel. Our leaves are hand plucked and fashioned into tiny leaf sets that are covered with fine silver downy furs, which give this unique tea a refined and sophisticated flavor profile.

Drinking this tea echoes the sensation of walking through a newly-flowered spring meadow — the aromatics and flavors are insistent, but not overpowering.


The sweet, umami-esque notes present in each cup that are sure to please any veteran tea drinker as well as the newly introduced. A well-brewed Imperial Bi Luo Chun will leave you with an unforgettable memory.

Preparation:

We recommend gaiwan preparation. Preheat the gaiwan and fill with 3-5 grams of leaves. Infuse with relatively cool water, 55-65C, 130-150F and infuse for 2 or 3 minutes (or longer for more flavor and intensity). To serve, pour into a pitcher or directly into warmed tasting cups and enjoy. Bi Luo Chun may be re-infused several times by gradually increasing steeping time and water temperature.

5 of 5 Awww, wow.... April 14, 2021
Reviewer: Susan Boyle from Columbia, SC United States  
This tastes as if I had walked a few minutes ago out into the "green" and picked a handful to brew. Very light   subtle sweetgrass flavors with the slightest tinge of the bush it came from. This tea almost evaporates in the mouth before you can swallow, it's such a light, delicate living thing---wow.
