 Details: This is a light green tea that has a wonderful mixture of sweetness, vegetal flavors, and a bit of smoke. Bi Lo Chun comes from the tiny Dongting peninsula in Jiangsu Province. It is the most northernly grown tea in China. Our source, who calls himself Water, makes sure we get the best!
 Dry Leaves: A mixture of dark green, almost bluish gray, spiraled, wiry filaments coated in fuzzy yellow down.
 Liquor: Pale green, slightly cloudy from the down.
 Aroma: Light and sweet, with the roasted sweetness of brown sugar and a vegetal base note. There are baked notes from drying the leaves on a hot wok.
 Flavors: The faintest hint of flowers is nearly matched by the roasted vegetal flavor.
 Caffeine Level: Caffeinated
 Body: Light-bodied, slightly brisk. The briskness dries the mouth slightly.
 Brewing Time: 3 minutes
 Brewing Temp: 175¬ļ
