Bi Luo Chun Green Tea – 2023 Harvest
$22.50 – $90.00
This green tea doesn’t need a lot of introduction. Along with the famed Long Ching or Dragon Well tea, Bi Luo Chun is perhaps one of the most famous green teas on Earth. Ancient tea scriptures admired the “astonishing fragrance” of this tea, for obvious reasons. Beautifully hand-rolled tiny leaf curls are covered with white downy furs. This tea delivers the gentle sweetness and silky smoothness that are signs of a great Bi Luo Chun. Harvested, packed, and hand-produced at the farm for maximum protection and freshness.
We recommend steeping this tea at a lower temperature. We suggest three to five grams of tea to six oz of water as a starting point and to extract the most flavor without excessive astringency. As always, adjust the temperature, steeping time, and the amount of leaves based on your own preferences, high water temperature or more leaves for higher intensity, lower temperature, and longer steeping time for better texture and mouth-feel. A starting temperature of 70C-158F is recommended.
