Leaf Type: Green
Where to Buy: Teavivre
Made only from tea leaf tips in an involved process that results in it having a tight rolled up shape, Bi Luo Chun is renowned for its strong fruity aroma and mellow flavour. A plantation growing Bi Luo Chun is amazing to visit, with the tea plants mixed in with a variety of fragrant fruit trees to give the tea its aroma and taste. TeaVivre’s Bi Luo Chun is premium grade direct from the slopes of Dong Ting mountain, has a bright green color and strong almost citrus aroma to it. An amazing tea!

I do enjoy a good Bi Luo Chun (or Pi Lo Chun) and this Bi Luo Chun Green Tea from Teavivre is as good as it gets!
The aroma of the dry leaf is absolutely lovely. It reminds me of Orange County, California when I was young – back when orange groves were still everywhere. When the orange trees were blossoming, I would love to visit the orange groves and experience the fragrance of the air. So beautifully aromatic – just like this tea!
The flavor is superb. The taste is fresh … like sweet, freshly steamed veggies that have been accented with fruit. The fruit tones are not quite as acidic as a citrus fruit would be … I’m getting more of a sweet, fruity note here and less of a tangy one, although there is a tangy note that comes forward right at the tail. Almost like a cross between an orange and a melon. Yummy!
There is a creaminess to the texture as well, but, not so much a buttery taste or texture … it’s a very light creamy texture that melds well with the light vegetal tones.
This is one of those teas that I could drink happily every day. It is so refreshing and delicious hot or iced, but I prefer it hot simply because more of the nuances come forward with the hot tea. As it cools, some of those lighter notes seem to mute.
Another EXCEPTIONAL tea from a company that continually delivers exceptional products – Teavivre!
