Brewing Guide:
We recommend using glass-based or porcelain tea ware. Rinse tea cup and teapot with hot water. Use about 2.5 - 3 grams of tea leaves (1-2.5 teaspoons) for every 225 ml of water. Steep tea leaves in hot water at 70°c (158°F) to 80°c (176°F) for 1 minute for the first and second brewing. Gradually increase steeping time and temperature for subsequent brewing.

 

This isnt what Im normally used to in a Bi Luo Chun, but it is really very good. The fruity nuances of the tea are much more pronounced in this one, and I actually like it better than the competition grade Dong Ting Bi Luo Chun. If youre used to other Bi Luos then this may not be what youre expecting, but its a great buy nonetheless.

good tea, complex, and sweet, but in my opinion it is the weakest of the famous teas of china, still very good
