Where To Buy: Drink T
One of the rarest of green teas, Pi Lo Chun is grown in orchards amongst fruit trees. The sweet fragrance of the fruit blossoms are absorbed by the tea leaves while growing. The short harvest season, from the Spring Equinox (end of March) to the Clear Brightness (early April), also contributes to its exclusivity.
Our Pi Lo Chun uses only the finest, most tender leaves. It’s hand picked and processed in the higher elevations of Taiwan where the tea bushes are shrouded in mist and kept cool by the high mountain air.
Sweet and crisp, this tea is well rounded and will finish with a clean, lingering taste.

On my personal rating level – I have this currently set at an 89.
It has a slight buttered veggie scent but it doesn’t really taste like buttered veggies. It’s not grassy at all! I like that! I like that it sort of fakes you out! It’s also sweet but even a little floral. The Finish and after taste are both sweet and clean!
Don’t let this one pass you by – or you pass it by, rather! It’s a nice cuppa!
