There’s something just so … lovely about a top notch Bi Lu Chun like this Supreme Bi Lu Chun Green Tea from Grand Tea. The leaves are so beautiful, so tiny and tender and covered with soft, fuzzy down. They look, smell and feel so fresh.
The brewed liquid is very pale green and it has a delightfully delicate flavor. The sweetness is so profound … like a sugary sweetness! It has a smooth taste that is softly vegetal with hints of butter-like notes. There are layers of flavor to this as well, and I can pick up on whispers of fruit and floral notes, as well as a sweet, nutty tone in the distance. As I continue to sip, the nutty flavors come a little more into focus, but, these flavors are never strongly pronounced.
That’s because the overall cup is so beautifully delicate. This delicate quality doesn’t allow the flavors to come through strongly, instead, it beckons your palate to discover them. It’s a tea that you want to sit and consider rather than one that you want to rush through. This tea wants to take things slowly with you and allow you to discover the flavors and enjoy them as they’re revealed.
This Supreme Bi Lu Chun is truly an exceptional Chinese green – and it’s a tea that should be experienced by every tea drinker out there!
