Brewing Guide:We recommend using glass-based or porcelain Tea ware. Rinse Tea cup and Teapot with hot water. Use about 2 grams of Tea leaves (1-2 Teaspoons) for every 150ml of water. Steep Tea leaves in hot water at 70°c (158°F) to 80°c (176°F) for 1 minute for the first and second brewing. Gradually increase steeping time and temperature for subsequent brewing.
The leaf of Pi lo Chun is tiny and comes out spiral shaped; the brew is clear and golden and of exceeding delicacy.In the cup its skillfully hand-crafted, downy leaves unfold to produce a delicate, aromatic, light golden liquor which opens with a fresh, crisp astringency and develops into a well-rounded sweetness with a lingering, mellow, slightly buttery, finish. A unique, superior Tea with much in it to discover and appreciate. Preperation: We recommend a covered steeping cup. Preheat the cup with hot water and fill with 1-2 Teaspoons of leaf. Cover with relatively cool water, 55-65C, 131-149F and infuse for 2 or 3 minutes. To serve, pour into a pitcher or directly into warmed cups and enjoy. Bi Luo Chun may be reinfused several times by gradually increasing steeping time and water temperature.
