First tasting today is Biluo Chun from teaful, I picked this up at the southwest tea fest. And finally got a chance to try it today. I picked this up as part of their taste of taiwan volume 1 pack.
I started by brewing this in my gaiwan for about 30 seconds, I got a very clear very pale yellow liquor, with a very mild aroma. Tasting it, I got just the very smallest hint of astrigency, but a very strong creamy spinach flavor and aroma. Its surprisingly delicate and sweet for a green tea.
Second brew made it a bit stronger, but still very good, the vegetal notes are coming out now but not overpowering the cream or spinach. And the astrigency has almost disappeared.
The third steeping I pumped the temp up to 185 and brewed it for 45 seconds and it kept the sweet spinach and cream flavors and aromas and just slightly picked up a bit more vegetal astrigency.
I highly recommend this tea as it would be incredibly hard to overbrew this to astrigency as even pushing it resulted in a very light refreshing tea.
Flavors: Cream, Grass, Spinach, Vegetal
