2 Aroma
 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.
 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. This year's version is sweeter than previous years.
 Caffeine Level: Caffeinated
 Body: Light-bodied, slightly brisk. The briskness dries the mouth slightly.
 Brewing Time: 2 minutes
 Brewing Temp: 175º
