I have some news:The paperwork was signed for my new house on Wednesday and I receive the keys on Friday 14th. I will be moving towards the end of the month ie in a few weeks, this will make my Steepster posts erratic and infrequent, though I hope that it should only be as such for a few weeks. It’s been several months in the process already (thanks to the vendors solicitor ignoring our questions and concerns) but at least the end is in near sight.
Now to the actual tea – These small Bi Luo Chun balls have very shiny silver tips with lots of hair and gloss. They have a thick grass, sweet pea and floral scent.
ps – While this is steeping I will mention my method. I’m using a new travel set I bought from AliExpress. The bowls are 50ml and the steeping pot is 100ml. It’s perfect to take to my parents house next time I dog sit for them.http://www.aliexpress.com/item/Free-shipping-Longquan-celadon-office-tea-cup-pot-Quik-cups-Kung-Fu-Tea-Tea-Travel-easy/1983323037.html
Once steeped the tea is cloudy yellow in colour with a thick yet sweet floral scent.
Flavour is sweet and grassy with floral and vegetal tones, all being smooth with a crisp finish. Like sweet pea flowers, peony, grass, seaweed, butter and green leaf cabbage all in one. It leaves a sweet floral smog like after taste. It carries it’s flavours well through further steeps, though it picks up a toasted like, dry flavour.
It’s full of flavour that is clean and smooth tasting, making this a beautiful Bi Luo Chun.
