Review of Bi Luo Chun Green Tea (Pi Lo Chun)

OutstandingExcellentGood Value

This is the most complex green tea I've ever tasted. It has a very fresh nutty and floral aroma and bright, slightly tangy (but not sour like some cheap gunpowder and chun mee) taste with notes of nuts, fresh herbs, citrus fruit, and hints of vegetables.

It resteeps well, brewing at least three good cups as long as the first two are kept around two minutes. Longer brews don't make it bitter or overly astringent, just stronger. It does get very bitter if the temperature is even a little too high, but it's still not hard to brew right. The price is pretty good for the quality. However, I haven't tried any other Bi Luo Chun to know if there's a better value out there.
