(Short review due to travels this week!)
Carrying one of the longest names I have ever seen in tea, Teavivre's
Dong Ting Bi Luo Chun (also known as Pi Luo Chun) is a non-fermented
green tea with a bold taste. In my tasting, I used three teaspoons of
leave in two cups of water for one and a half minutes of steeping. The
leaves do give off a fruity aroma, and I wonder if the tea will taste
the same way.
This tea is certainly far less vegetal than others, such as
gunpowder greens. "Fruity" does not not quite describe it, but it has a
certain fruit edge to it. Other prominent flavors include a distinct
nuttiness and natural sweetness. This tea is quite pleasant and provides
an enjoyable drinking experience. For green tea fans, it is well worth a
try. On my personal enjoyment scale, I would give it an 85/100.
Teavivre's Dong Ting Bi Luo Chun Green Tea is available from their website, here.
