From Masters Teas

This “new style” pi lo chun" has a sweet aromatic leaf; is complex and fruity with soft smoky-meatiness underneath. It does not have fuzzy buds like a traditional pi lo chun, but more of a thin, wirey dry leaf appearance. Plummy notes, with apricots and white grapes linger on your tongue revealing the secret of this tea’s origin – the Tai Lake area is populated with fruit trees that lend their sweet character to this light bodied green.

So far this was my least favorite out of the green sampler pack that came with my ingenuiTEA. It had a very strong earthy flavor to it, in fact it was the strongest tea in my sampler pack. However, I found it to be on the astringent side and had a bitter after taste that I didn’t care for. The bitterness disappeared a little bit at room temperature, but it wasn’t much of an improvement

I brewed and drank this tea out of my large gaiwan Chinese “glass brewing style”. This new style Pi Lo Chun is a lot more interesting in my opinion as it has a enjoyable sweet fruity taste to it which is neither too floral nor too grassy. While the tea does have some subtle smoke under notes to it, the smoke is light enough that it should not be a problem for anybody that likes fruity but not smoky greens.

Overwhelmingly grassy with some unpleasant smoky notes. Did not notice any fruit, just too much bitter grassiness.

This is better than the regular pi lo chun from adagio, but still terrible.
